The Penguins forward was warming up for a game and hit the boards, accidentally knocking over a fan's beer. Instead of being a jerk he gave the fan a puck and some cash to pay for the beer.
"Mike felt terrible about it, so he asked the trainer to grab $10 out of Rupp’s wallet," Rupp’s agent Allan Walsh told the Toronto Sun.
"He then wrote an apology on a puck, signed it and taped the $10 bill around it. He went over to the glass, got the guy’s attention and tossed the puck over to him."
I'm sure Rupp has a fan for life.
