ST. LOUIS (KPLR) - It was Saturday night at the Scottrade Center, the Blues won, and their superstar is skating off the We now know more about a random act of kindness caught on camera following Saturday night’s St. Louis Blues game.  11-year-old Noah Kleinlehrer is the young boy who gave a hockey stick to another family.  Kleinlehrer says he felt moved to do something nice.

“I saw that little boy a couple rows down in that section,” said Kleinlehrer.  “I just had that feeling maybe it's his first game.”

The Fox Sports Midwest video of the giveaway has been viewed more than 700,000 times on the St. Louis Blues Facebook Page.

Rabbi Elizabeth Hersh said those who know her son have the same reaction.

“That’s just who he is,” said Hersh.  “We are very, very proud of him.”

Kleinlehrer is not a regular at hockey games, but he is a big St. Louis Blues fan.  A family friend took him to Saturday’s contest against the Minnesota Wild.  He was caught on camera wearing a Jori Lehtera jersey but wants everyone to know he’s also a big Vladimir Tarasenko fan.

Saturday was the first time Kleinlehrer received an NHL stick but said giving it away, “made me feel great.”

“I think that our community, our world is a much better place when people look out for others and think about other’s feelings,” said Hersh.  “Noah expects nothing in return.  He did it for the sake of doing it.”
