GLENDALE, Ariz. — U.S. Army Sergeant Dan Urman had the opportunity to surprise his parents over the weekend after returning early from Afghanistan.

Urman didn’t make it very far onto the ice before he was greeted by a rather  big hug from his father.  Urman and his father both lost their balance and toppled over.

His parents thought they were at the Arizona Coyotes NHL game to participate in the ceremonial puck drop but got an even better surprise when the puck was delivered to the ice.

The video of the celebratory reunion was uploaded Saturday and already has more than 500,000 views.
