The Oshawa, ON, native attended Game 2 in Boston in full Leafs regalia, along with six friends to celebrate his 23rd birthday, but the evening had a sour ending.
Hay and his pals were heckled all game and had things thrown at them, before he was knocked out cold by a sucker-punch thrown by a Bruins fan while exiting the arena.
Hay ended up in hospital with three staples in the back of his head and a concussion.
A social media effort quickly took form, after a YouTube video surfaced showing Hay unconscious, aiming to get Hay tickets to another game.
Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment confirmed Tuesday night that Hay was given two tickets to take in Game 4.
Hay had said he'd be happy to take the tickets, but didn't deserve them any more than any other passionate Leafs supporter.
