Calgary Flames center Matt Stajan has been playing with a heavy heart since the death of his newborn son earlier this month. After taking leave from the team, he returned to the ice — and the scoring column — in moving fashion.

After finding the back of the net in the Flames’ 8-1 destruction of Edmonton, Stajan paid tribute to his departed son by pointing to the sky. He was also greeted with hugs and kind words upon returning to his team’s bench.

Powerful moment.
