Watch: Former enforcer brought to tears by son's 1st NHL goal


Even former NHL tough guys can get emotional when the moment calls for it.

Louie DeBrusk, father of Boston Bruins rookie Jake and a veteran of more than 400 NHL games himself, teared up when his son notched the first goal of his career Thursday night against the Nashville Predators.

It was a big night for Bruins rookies and their parents, as defenseman Charlie McAvoy buried his first NHL goal to the delight of his mom and dad about 10 minutes later.
