David Pastrnak donated his All-Star Game car to Kaitlin Hagstrom, a Tufts nurse

New, comment

Nice guy, that David Pastrnak.

Boston Bruins

If you think back to January, way back during the Before Times, our man David Pastrnak had himself a pretty good All-Star Game.

The future co-Rocket Richard winner scored four goals and recorded two assists in two games, earning himself Most Valuable Player honors.

That award, sponsored by Honda, came with a four-wheeled gift: a 2020 Honda CR-V Hybrid. Nice car!

Of course, David Pastrnak is a multi-millionaire and probably didn’t need a brand new Honda.

However, he made sure that it didn’t go to waste, donating it to a worthy recipient: Kaitlin Hagstrom, a nurse at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.

Hagstrom has been on the front lines of COVID-19 since the beginning, treating patients in emergent situations. Per a press release from the team, her colleagues said called Hagstrom “someone who has calmly and consistently risen to the occasion and is a steadfast beacon of hope that reassures not only her patients but also her peers.”

It’s nice to see a nurse get rewarded for such selfless care, but it didn’t stop there — Pastrnak and the Bruins also donated a full set of hockey equipment for Hagstrom’s four-year-old son, Shaun.

Nice guy, that David Pastrnak.
