The fan, identified by the Rangers as Vinny, wanted to take a girl named Catherine to prom. During Monday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, he held a sign that said “Zucc! If you give me your stick, she'll go to prom with me!”

He was asking for help from Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello. The player didn't disappoint. He signed his hockey stick and gave it to Vinny.

“Have fun at prom,” he wrote. “Treat her right!”

A great night gets even better for Vinny and Catherine thanks to #NYR Mats Zuccarello! First they get the stick pre-game then Zucc signs the stick and sign!!
