Hockey player's act of kindness helps opponent

#WhatsAwesome is a hockey player's random act of kindness helping out his opponent! Pierre-Cedric Labrie couldn't get a flight out of Grand Rapids to Chicago due to the weather conditions, which would have caused him to miss the birth of his baby. Pierre-Cedric Labrie called a former teammate in Grand Rapids, who then got an opposing team member's goalie to loan his pick up truck!  "I was like, 'Zenger, you played in GR (Grand Rapids) a couple years ago,' " Labrie told JSonline. "Do you know anybody that would let me borrow a car? Because I called taxi drivers, there's a bad storm, no one wants to take me to Milwaukee. With the New Year's Eve parties, all the chauffeurs for the private cars are reserved.Goaltender Tom McCollum received the text from Mark Zengerle and was more than happy to help!"It was kind of funny the way he said it," McCollum said in a telephone interview with the Journal Sentinel. "He was like, 'Hey, I've got a question; it's totally cool if you say no,' and just kind of explained the situation of what happened."McCollum said he wasn't going to need his Ford F-150 for a couple of days anyway, so he lent Labrie his truck.Labrie got to the hospital at 6:15 a.m. His son was born at 6:54.
