Soldier Surprises Parents at Hockey Game – Dad’s Reaction is Priceless!


We here at Headline Politics never get tired of these videos of soldiers returning home to surprise their loved ones.

Dan Urman recently returned to surprise his parents at an NHL game for the Arizona Coyotes. Urman’s father’s reaction was epic, as he wrapped his son up in a bear hug that brought them both crashing down to the ice.

Via the Huffington Post:

When Dan Urman stepped onto the ice at an Arizona Coyotes NHL game over the weekend, he was promptly tackled to the ground.

But this was no hockey move.

Urman is a sergeant in the U.S. Army who has been stationed in Afghanistan. On Saturday, he surprised his parents, Eitan and Ronit Urman, during the ceremonial puck drop before the start of a game between the Coyotes and the Anaheim Ducks.

When Urman stepped onto the ice, his shocked father enveloped him in a big bear hug. The force of the dad’s embrace was so intense that the pair toppled to the ice.

The best part about his Dad’s hug? Even as they fall hard to the ice, the father doesn’t even consider letting go for a split second. In fact, he squeezes his son even tighter.
