NHL player scores OT winner, celebrates with "other team"


Before moving on to the NHL Stanley Cup Eastern Conference Finals, one hockey player made one of the coolest moves a player can make. It wasn’t a shot, or a goal. It wasn’t a crushing hit or a flashy deke. It was class. 

During Game 5 between the Ottawa Senators and New York Rangers, Kyle Turris scored the game-winning overtime goal. But instead of using his free time to celebrate with the Senators, Turris spent it with his other team -- the Capital City Condors

The Condors are “a family of ice hockey teams for those who are unable to play on any other hockey team due to a developmental disability.” 

Turris, along with his wife Julie, regularly attend Condors practices and events, but it was assumed he was too busy to attend the the end-of-the-season banquet for the Condors. But as the rest of the Senators boarded a plane for New York, the Condors’ honorary captain walked through the doors just 90 minutes after scoring the game-winning goal.

Condors co-founder and president Jim Perkins told TSN, “I’ve never been in an environment like that. The place just exploded. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
