Nothing beats a grand return of a soldier from overseas, especially when that reunion comes at an NHL hockey game to the surprise of his/her family.

Young Angelina Egan and family had the pleasure of attending the Carolina Hurricanes' game on Saturday night against Montreal when she was called up to take part in some big screen fun. While she was distracted by the spinning boxes in the Hurricanes' version of the classic shell game, the surprise was being set up behind her.

After she won the game, she received her reward. Not only did she get a $25 gift certificate to spend in the arena but she got her dad back, Staff Sargeant Christopher Egan. Egan wasn't scheduled to come back to the States for another couple of weeks, or so his daughter thought.

The result was an emotional reunion and a huge ovation from the crowd on hand to witness the reunion. The players and officials, too. Always awesome, great job on helping out, Hurricanes.
