A hockey fan was awarded $10,000 from two National Hockey League teams as a thank-you for spotting a cancerous mole on a staffer during a game and possibly saving his life.

Nadia Popovici was watching the Vancouver Canucks play the Seattle Kraken on Oct. 23 when she spotted a small mole on the neck of Brian "Red" Hamilton, the Canucks' assistant equipment manager.

Popovici, an incoming medical student, waited for the game to finish, waved Hamilton over and placed her phone against the plexiglass to show him a message she typed urging Hamilton to get his mole checked out.
