Looks like the Jansen family is getting a new dog, thanks to Ottawa Senators star winger Bobby Ryan.
At Ottawa’s game against the New York Rangers at Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday, Sens fan Cole Jansen brought a sign that read "Bobby, dad said if you score we get a puppy."
And when Ryan scored the first goal of the game with 19.9 seconds left in the second period, Cole stood up and displayed the sign proudly, while his father, Warren, shifted off to the side, smiling broadly.
Cole, along with the rest of his family, were interviewed by TSN in the third period.
Warren said he plans to honour his promise, and wished that he didn't bet against a player who has already scored 17 goals this season.
"They've been bugging me for months to get this dog and I thought: 'Hey if I make a bet and they lose then at least I'm off Scot-free," he said.
"I just shouldn’t have picked such a talented player like Bobby Ryan -- I should've picked someone else."
Cole said that the family is planning to get a Pomsky, a Siberian husky and Pomeranian mix.
The Senators ended up winning the game 3-0 over the Rangers.
