National Hockey League player Paul Postma has awesome parents. The newly-minted Boston Bruins defenseman was practicing in Calgary before a game when his parents drove about 90 minutes from Red Deer, Alberta, so he could visit and play with his dog, Copper.
It’s always good to come home.

The 2-year-old pup went on the ice and got a big hug from the No. 14 Bruin, according to NHL.com.
And judging by the tweets of the February 18 reunion, Postma and his four-legged sidekick may just have a built-in fan base.
LOOK AT THAT SMILE TOMMY

This dog deserves all the cuddles. It's so damn fluffy and cute!

Anyone that loves his dog that much is someone I want to be friends with.

Postma, who just signed a one-year deal with the Bruins, is certainly getting some love from Bruins fans. And Copper is helping to break the ice.
