Florida Panther's captain, Aleksander Barkov, helped spread some holiday joy by visiting sick children at Joe Dimaggio's Children's Hospital!

Barkov was joined by teammates Brett Connolly and Denis Malgin as they all gave the ill children some early Christmas presents.

"We had a lot of fun and I hope they did too. We had a couple of nice guys, Malgin and Brett, and we had a lot of fun just seeing kids and hopefully we put a smile on their faces too," said Barkov.

Barkov is an ambassador for Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital. Number 16 is donating $1,600 to the hospital every time he scores a goal this season.
