Edmonton Oilers players come to the aid of stranded fans

Edmonton Oilers forwards Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zach Hyman had quite the eventful Saturday on and off the ice.

The Oilers were in Seattle to take on the Kraken and walked away with a 2-1 victory to extend their win streak to three games and in the process, surpassed the Vegas Golden Knights for second place in the Pacific Division.

After the game, the Edmonton Oilers flew back to the Alberta capital as they had the second-half of a back-to-back on Sunday against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. While on their way home in Edmonton, Oilers forwards Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zach Hyman came to the rescue of a motorist who was stuck in the snow.

"My son's friend got stuck in the snow tonight. Another vehicle stopped to help, and out stepped Nuge and Hyman! Top notch human beings!"



It's great to hear stories like this and to have Nugent-Hopkins and Hyman, who were more than likely exhausted, stop to help this person on their way home after playing a game, followed by a flight back to Edmonton, just proves that hockey players are the kindest athletes out there.

Nugent-Hopkins and Hyman will look to turn that positive off the ice into a positive on the ice during tonight's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins and help extend Edmonton's win streak to four games.
