Garret Sparks notes just how small Kasimir Kaskisuo's stick is...

Hey, Kaskisuo was helping out a young fan!

The Toronto Maple Leafs' goaltending still isn't defined quite yet. Well, the most important position is - Frederik Andersen is set to be the starter, for the next several years in all likelihood - but after that, it's a bit of a mystery.

Two hopefuls to move up the ranks are Garret Sparks and Kasimir Kaskisuo. Sparks is a bit closer - he already has NHL experience, while Kaskisuo is fresh out of just two years in the NCAA - but that hasn't stopped the playful chirps over Twitter.

It all kicked off when a young fan of Kaskisuo's was upset he left the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs - though he did make an effort to make it better!

But Sparks couldn't resist joining in:

Now that he mentions it, that stick is VERY small indeed. Kaskisuo knows just how to deal with the chirps, though.

Indeed. And now there's a kid much happier than he was before - so it all works out in the end! Even with very little sticks.
