Nick Suzuki makes young fans dream come true after awful experience in Toronto

Remember the story of the young Habs fan that was reportedly kicked out of Scotiabank Arena? Well the Montreal Canadiens honored their promise to the family. Tonight, Hunter and his father Steven Beauparpant will attend their first game at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The Canadiens are set to host the Washington Capitals tonight. Last weekend Steven Beauparpant, shared that his son, Hunter is a huge Nick Suzuki fan. Hunter made a sign for Nick at the game last Saturday between the Canadiens and Maple Leafs.

Nick Suzuki saw the young boy with his sign and threw a puck over the glass to him. Unfortunately, the Hunter missed it and it struck him in the lip, cutting him. Suzuki then went over to the boy during warm ups and gave Hunter an autographed stick and took selfies with Hunter and his father.

This is where the story changes according to Hunter's father, at some point the security at Scotiabank Arena kicked them out of the game because they considered the hockey stick a prohibited weapon. But the Toronto Maple Leafs Security Department said they didn't remove the family until there was 10 minutes left in the game, while they were walking through the concourse.

The Montreal Canadiens organization and Nick Suzuki didn't agree with the Maple Leafs decision and decided to provide Steven and Hunter tickets and travel to tonight's game at the Bell Centre.
