Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane is scoring points for something he did off the ice.

Kane was on an American Airlines flight when he heard of a US soldier also on board.

Kane then requested to switch seats, giving the soldier a seat in first-class.

Per American Military News:

Teri Truss, a flight attendant from Columbus, Ohio, tweeted out a picture of her and Kane with the caption “Patrick Kane from the BLACKHAWKS gave up his 1st Class seat to a SOLDIER…what a class act… ”

“He said, ‘There’s a soldier on this flight,’ and I said ‘Yeah, OK?’” Truss told CBS Chicago. “He said, ‘I would like for him to sit up front, and I would like to give him my first-class seat, and I’ll go to the back.’ I’m like, ‘Are you sure?’ He said ‘yes,’ and I was like, ‘Perfect, great opportunity.’”

A flight attendant captured the moment, calling the exchange a “class act.”
