We've all spent time watching soldiers reunite with their family members online, but Saturday an entire Rush Arena got to see it in person.
Tim Mancini has spent the last year in Afghanistan and was finally reunited with his kids. Orion and Acadia Mancini thought they were just playing a game during an intermission at a Rush hockey game, but the prize was their father!
Crystal Anderson, a family friend, says this is an experience the family won't forget. "This is such a special moment for a little boy and a little girl to be reunited with their dad. He's been gone for a year and that's not only hard on an adult, that's hard on kids," said Anderson.
