Quinn Waters, better known as ‘The Mighty Quinn,’ a three-year-old who has battled a form of brain cancer, had a simple request for fellow Weymouth, Mass. native Charlie Coyle on Hockey Fights Cancer Night at TD Garden on Tuesday night.

“He told me to score one for him,” Coyle revealed.

And a beautiful slap-pass from David Krejci gave Coyle all he needed to put one on the board for Quinn.

“That worked out nicely,” Coyle said with a grin. “Brought a little luck for me and the team.”

But that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Coyle, who visited ‘The Quinndow’ this past summer (Coyle admitted he prefers to see him out and about), being happy for Quinn’s smile.

“He deserves it; him and his family deserve it,” Coyle, who talked about emotional the situation was for all involved, said. “You don’t even realize or know what they go through and that’s got to be just a terrible thing. I’m glad that things are looking up and that they got to come out here and be a part of this and for us to kind of be a part of their life.”

Here’s to hoping this is just the first of many times Weymouth’s good luck charm makes it out to TD Garden.
