HARTFORD - A touching story here in Hartford this Saturday as the Hartford Wolf Pack volunteer fan team had a special guest at today's game.

Player Chris Higgins has been away in the Navy for the past two years and returned Saturday to surprise his parents.

They were at the game to see their other son Matthew play but before the puck dropped the announcer recognized those serving our country, including Chris, who skated out for the surprise.
