    There are plenty of stories about professional athletes behaving badly, but if you’re seeking out an example of a player who goes the extra mile, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Scott Darling seems to be a good candidate.

    The goaltender, who has been with the Blackhawks since the beginning of the 2014-15 season, made quite the impression on an Uber driver in the Phoenix area recently. 

    Kane Van Gate shared the story on Twitter of how Darling went out of his way to help a stranger.

    To his credit, Darling responded, saying he’s fortunate to be able to help people in need.
