This happened on Thursday night in Los Angeles following the Kings' 3-2 shootout win over the Colorado Avalanche, but it's still worth watching now if you missed it.

Following the three-stars-of-the-game presentation at Staples Center, Kings center Mike Richards (selected as the game's first star) decided to give away his stick to a fan seated in the first row.

Nice gesture. Until the fan, whom we can only assume is the reigning mother of the year, dropped the kid she was holding up against the glass in an effort to catch the stick.

I'm not a parent, but I do feel that I can at least offer this piece of advice: Don't do that.
