Bruins rookie Trent Frederic made his NHL debut Tuesday night and he wasted little time trying to make an impression, dropping the gloves towards the end of the second period. Frederic went all Happy Gilmore on Brandon Tanev’s face and wouldn’t ya know the rook’s parents were in the stands. How did Dad deal with seeing his baby boy fist fighting a grown ass man in the NHL? LOVED. IT.

That is a #HockeyDad through and through. Doesn’t matter how many goals you score or how much tape you hit, if I’m waking up at 4 am to drive you to practice, you are going to defend the honor of our house.
Full fight below.
