Charlotte dentist Robert Pappert prized the hockey stick he bought New Year’s Day after a special NHL game in Chicago.

That is, until he learned it was stolen from a 14-year-old Detroit Red Wings fan who was given the souvenir after the game by a star Wings player.

Horrified, Pappert overnight-mailed the stick back to the young fan on Monday – an act that has made him a hero of sorts for what some in hockey circles are calling the “Miracle of Nice.” (Chicago Tribune.com)
