SURPRISE: @GrittyNHL surprises 7 y/o fan Caiden O’Rourke at @shrinersphilly who just got a new custom Gritty prosthetic leg this morning. Look at his face! @6abc pic. twitter.

Gritty was there to deliver a custom Gritty-themed prosthetic leg to Caiden, who was born with a rare orthopedic condition that requires him to use two prosthetic legs.

On Tuesday, Gritty, the legendary Philadelphia Flyers mascot, surprised 7-year-old fan Caiden O’Rourke at Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.

Hospital staff reached out to the Flyers after Caiden requested that his next prosthetic be Gritty-themed.

Caiden has had multiple sports-themed prosthetic legs in the past, many of them from Philadelphia teams, according to Fox 29.

Caiden also received a custom Philadelphia Flyers jersey.

I have a feeling Caiden won’t be taking off this custom @NHLFlyers jersey lol pic. twitter.
