Caiden O'Rourke had just received a new custom Gritty prosthetic leg.

Flyers mascot Gritty made a seven-year-old fan's morning on Tuesday when he surprised Caiden O'Rourke at Philadelphia's Shriners Hospital for Children. Caiden had received a new custom Gritty prosthetic leg when the beloved mascot showed up.

Caiden couldn't stop smiling when Gritty pulled out a Flyers jersey with his name on the back.
