After the London Knights won the OHL Championship, co-captain Mitch Marner didn't hesitate on who first to pass the J. Ross Robertson Trophy to: Knights prospect Jacob Buch, who is battling cancer.
There's no doubt that has to be the coolest part of the entire celebration. Sure, it's awesome to see a Toronto Maple Leafs prospect play such a huge role in winning a championship, but it's awesome on a whole other level to see just how it's celebrated.

This is the ultimate level of sportsmanship. Hopefully Buch will get the chance to raise that trophy again - though the first time was pretty sweet, in all senses of the word.
