Zach Bogosian isn’t exactly scared of fighting. On the contrary, fighting is a big part of his game, and just this season, he has two fighting majors as one of the most physical players of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Most kids who grow up playing hockey want to be Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews, but not Zach Bogosian’s son Hunter. Hunter, just 3-year-old, wants to be a hockey player just like his dad, and a video on social media of the two spread like wildfire earlier this week.
In the video, Zach Bogosian takes a fight – not a serious one, of course – with his son, and everybody loves it.
Zach Bogosian was asked by Gabby Shirley, a reporter for the Lightning, what he felt about throwing the gloves with his son, and the answer is impossible to dislike.
“He asked me if I wanted to fight so he wanted to do it. It was fun. You remember that age, what it was like, and to see him loving the game as much as I do it’s like a proud dad moment,” he says.
Zach also told the Tampa Bay Times that little Hunter got a good one on him.
“But yeah, we were just messing around. He actually caught me pretty good in the nose, which I didn’t think he was going to. … He pretty much jumped me. I was surprised how hard he threw his stick and gloves. That was cute.”
