What started out as a “back-at-ya” video from one hockey player to his former Wenatchee Wild teammates has turned into a national sensation.

Chris Rumble, a former Wild player and now a team employee, shot the video at Children’s Hospital last Saturday after finishing a 35-day stay for treatment of leukemia. He meant for it to be a return present to his former Wild teammates after they shot him a video for his birthday while playing a series in Alaska last month.

You may want to grab a tissue, or five. Click the photo above to watch the video, then check out the behind the scenes video below. 

Rumble posted his video on YouTube on Sunday and by this morning it had been viewed more than 250,000 times. He was interviewed by Seattle television stations on Monday, did a phone interview with the Today Show on Tuesday, and will appear on CNN on Wednesday.

Singing superstar Kelly Clarkson, whose song “Stronger” Rumble used for the video, posted links to the video on her Facebook page and Twitter on Tuesday with the comment:


These kids are so inspiring. I want to give them all a big hug.
