Fan shows up with a special request from an unlikely player.

This was pretty awesome.

When a fan showed up in Ottawa with a sign asking for a goal from Senators star Bobby Ryan it was one thing, but this is on a whole other level.

This young lady showed up with a sign for none another than Cam Atkinson, lucky number 13, and that sign made it clear all she wanted for her birthday was a puppy, and a puppy only required a single goal from Cam to become a reality.

Well we wouldn't be writing this if she didn't get that wish, and not only did she get it but Atkinson went off for by far his best offensive output of the season, tearing apart the struggling Canadiens with three big goals. Those three goals would propel the Jackets to a 5-2 win.


And he cemented his hat-trick with this pretty passing play.
