This is one classy move by the Philadelphia Flyers.

A Redditor's father recently passed away, and he was a huge Flyers fan. Even though the man wasn't a season-ticket holder, Flyers captain Claude Giroux sent this letter on behalf of the entire organization to his family to thank him for his years of support. You can see the letter below.


Here's what the letter says:

On behalf of the entire Philadelphia Flyers organization, I would like to thank Patrick (BLANK) for his years of support and dedication to our hockey team. Patrick’s constant support and unfailing loyalty is a true testament to the bond between our team and our fans and exemplifies why we have the best fans in the National Hockey League. Our thoughts are with the (BLANK) family during this difficult time and we would like to express our sincere condolences to you and your family.
