Tiny Bruins fan can't get enough pregame fist-bumps from players

MORE DAPS PLEASE, says small child.

At the start of the season, an adorable Maple Leafs fan was seen handing out daps to players. Well, he has competition now. The new market inefficiency is unbearably cute children fist-bumping hockey players. Get on that immediately, NHL front offices. We want a child dapping every player, stat.

And look how tough he is!


So tough!

UPDATE: has a great story up about this remarkable kid, 8-year-old Liam Fitzgerald.

What makes Liam, who has Down syndrome, so tough? Well, he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 4. He defeated his cancer in the same way the Bruins took care of business in 2011. It wasn't easy and it took a while - 3 ½ years in Liam's case - but he eventually triumphed.

Check out the full article and get to know Liam.
