Missing a family member, put “on ice”

Leslie Brown

When a family member goes off in the service, especially to the Middle East, there is always that gnawing question of whether you will ever see them again.

Army Sergeant Dan Urman, who had been in Afghanistan, arranged to surprise his parents as they dropped the ceremonially puck for the beginning of an Arizona Coyotes hockey game.

In his shock and surprise, Dan’s father fell to the ice unharmed as they embraced in likely the warmest hug ever given on ice.

Before the Arizona Coyotes played the Anaheim Ducks Saturday, the team honored two season ticket-holders, Eitan and Ronit Urman, by having them drop the ceremonial puck. But what the Urmans didn’t know was that their son, U.S. Army Sergeant Dan Urman, had returned home from a tour in Afghanistan to surprise them.

The family’s reaction to seeing one another was incredibly heartwarming — but a bit cold, literally.
