After viral video, disillusioned young fan meets Sharks, gets Ryane Clowe jersey

When Ryane Clowe was traded by the San Jose Sharks to the New York Rangers at the deadline, 7-year-old Vincent Savage didn’t exactly handle it well.

The San Jose Sharks fan’s tear-filled lament was captured by his mother and posted to You Tube, where it became a viral video hit. Savage was concerned with everything from the Sharks fighting Clowe next season to him being a Ranger in NHL 14.

The most memorable line:

“I’m sad about everything the Sharks have done. I’m so mad at them.”

The Sharks heard him. So they invited him to their dressing room to meet the team and mend some fences.

According to David Pollak of the Mercury News, the Sharks brought Savage and his mother Laruen to both a pre-game skate and into their dressing room this week.

He met some of the players, including defenseman Dan Boyle, who quickly learned why this young man is a pint-sized puckhead:

"I can't believe you haven't won any Stanley Cups," the boy told Boyle, who politely corrected him. Boyle did win the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004.

"But you haven't won one with the Sharks," Vincent responded.

OH. SNAP.

Not only did the Sharks reach out to Savage: So did Clowe himself. According to the Mercury News, the young fan received a phone call and a signed jersey from the Rangers forward.

No word if it’s a Sharks or a Rangers jersey …
