Before the Stanley Cup Playoffs began for the New York Rangers, captain Jacob Trouba had a touching moment when he awarded a scholarship to a survivor of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Isaiah Márquez-Greene, 18, sat with Trouba on the Rangers’ bench during the final regular season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on April 13, where the Rangers defenseman broke the news.

«I know your story. I feel for you. You are an amazing human being,» Trouba said.

«This is a scholarship to law school. So you’re graduating from college. You’re going to law school. You won’t be in debt when you get out of school. You deserve it, man. Congrats.»

The scholarship is provided through the Garden of Dreams Inspire Scholarship, and Márquez Greene will use it to go to the University of Connecticut and live out his dream of becoming a lawyer.

Márquez-Greene will be in UConn’s Law Special Program, which is a prestigious program in which only 10% of applicants received a «yes» from the university.

But Trouba made it more personal than just giving Márquez-Green a scholarship. He also wanted to give her his phone number.

«You’re not going to give it to anyone else, but I want an invitation when you graduate from law school. I’ll contact you when you go to college next year,» Trouba said.

Marquez-Greene is a survivor of the horrific shooting in Newton, Connecticut, in 2012, but his younger sister, Ana, was not.

Márquez-Greene’s mother, Nelba, is a therapist who works with bereaved families while also operating the Ana Grace Project in honor of her daughter, according to the New York Post.

Marquez-Greene knows his way around the ice, playing goalie at Taft High School in Watertown, Connecticut. He, too, is no stranger to Trouba’s game, having lived in Winnipeg from the ages of 5 to 8, where Trouba once played for the Jets.
