Chicago Blackhawks Goalie Pays It Forward

Chicago Blackhawks backup goaltender Scott Darling is one of the lowest-paid players on the roster, but that didn't prevent him from helping a man in need during the Blackhawks' road trip last week.

Kane Van Gate, a semi-pro hockey goalie, got a ride in an Uber and when the driver saw his goalie gear he asked, "Do you know Scott Darling?"

Van Gate shared the rest of the story through his Twitter page, as told to him by the Uber driver in the Phoenix area.

The Blackhawks net-minder later confirmed the story and simply said that he was just trying to “pay it forward.”
