Blues’ coach Steve Ott’s son goes crazy on scoreboard, steals the show; his dad can’t help but smile

Steve Ott had a good NHL season, in which he played 848 NHL games and recorded 288 points.

With his 1,555 penalty minutes, he was known to be a serious player, and he’s carried that attitude with him onto the bench.

Just a year after Ott retired, he became an assistant coach for the St. Louis Blues, and he’s now in his seventh straight year on the Blues bench.

And during this weekend, Ott was involved in a hilarious moment during the Blues’ game vs. the Minnesota Wild.

Steve Ott’s son Maverick was in attendance for the game, and when he got the chance to steal the show, he certainly did it.

Little Maverick did a performance to hype up the crowd, as he even ripped off his Blues jersey and began spinning it over his head while screaming his lungs out. The crowd absolutely loved it, and they all roared to cheer him on.

Steve Ott even seemed to approve of his son’s hilarious show as well, as his ordinary stone-faced expression turned into a big smile. What a perfect way to get the crowd going. On social media, the kid received a lot of praise for his antics.

”Proud parenting moment!” one user said on X, formerly Twitter.

”Future St. Louis Blues Captain right there,” another said.

”One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I would’ve lost it, haha. What a great dad moment,” a third added.
