Watch: Kid in awe after getting a puck from Charlie Coyle

One of the best parts about sports.

"I came all the way from Weymouth to see Charlie Coyle." 

That's what a little boy wrote on a sign he brought to Monday's matinee game between the Wild and Islanders at Barclays Center in New Jersey. 

Of course, Coyle noticed the sign and made the little kid's day by handing him a puck through the glass, and the kid is clearly in awe when it happens. 

Weymouth, a town of about 55,000 people in Massachusetts, is the birthplace of the Wild center, and Coyle didn't miss an opportunity to make the kid's day. 

The kid's reaction is similar to the one a child had after Coyle waved to him during a game in 2013.
