Yesterday's high-energy Chicago Blackhawks rally was not without emotional moments. The team honored their assistant equipment manager Clint Reif's family and invited his son CJ on stage. Clint died earlier this season.

Blackhawk Kris Versteeg brought Clint’s son CJ to the podium.

Clint Reif was only 34-years old when he passed away at his home earlier this season.

It is widely known that NHL players form a strong bond for those who maintain their sticks, skates, and other equipment throughout the season.
