Giroux invites young fan to meet Flyers after viral Christmas video

Thursday January 8th, 2015

You remember this kid, right? 

Kohlsen Fisher was the big Flyers fan who got probably the worst Christmas present you can think of as a Flyers fan: a Sidney Crosby jersey.

Well Claude Giroux and the Flyers, like over 550,000 people, saw the video and they decided to make up for the cruel prank that his family pulled on him.


The Flyers sent him a package that included two jerseys, one autographed by Giroux -- even though it looks kind of like they 'just scribbled.' They also gave Kohlsen and his family tickets to a game with a post-game visit to the locker room to meet the team. His adorable reaction is just as good as his first. 

All in all, it looks like Christmas worked out pretty well for the youngster.
