Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers frustrated the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great night for the Sharks organization. In a touching move, the team gave youth hockey player Sam Tageson’s NHL dream come true, complete with an on-ice experience that left him in tears:
That wasn’t the only part of his NHL experience, however. Tageson also skated with the team in practice and enjoyed other parts of the process:
“No way to top today,” Tageson said, according to the Mercury News.
The 17-year-old is dealing with a heart condition, so the Sharks worked with the Make-A-Wish foundation to make his NHL dream come true.
Brent Burns seemed to agree that it was a great moment overall, even if the Sharks lost last night.
