Parents with children in the armed forces can go months at a time without seeing their loved ones.
For two parents, their son, U.S. Army Sergeant Dan Urman, has been stationed in Afghanistan.
They were invited to drop the puck before a recent Coyotes game, as they’ve held season tickets for almost 20 years.
But the biggest surprise of the night was seeing their son back in town to bring them the puck on center ice.
Watch above to see the heartwarming moment.
