Rangers reunite father and son in heartwarming fashion


  • You’ve probably seen 1,000 of these videos, and you’ve probably gotten goosebumps 1,000 times as well.
  • There’s something about seeing the raw emotion of a surprise reunion that really hits viewers deep, and even then there are some better than others.
  • The New York Rangers helped pull off an incredible surprise for Luke Buck – his father Ian returning home from serving over a year in Afghanistan.
  • This particular surprise was made even better by the build-up.
  • Luke was selected to participate in a contest where he names as many sports-themed movies as he can, remotely competing against a pre-recorded attempt by Adam Fox.
  • Not only did he win the jersey, but he got an even bigger prize as well.
  • We could watch this moment on repeat and it would not lose its emotional hit.
  • When the two’s long embrace finally loosens, cameras catch Luke fully engulfed in tears.
  • Bigger than hockey, bigger than sports.
