Jace takes to the ice to meet his hero
It's not very often that an 8-year-old gets signed to an NHL contract, but wish kid Jace proved the exception when he took to the ice with the Vegas Golden Knights in February.

Living with a blood disorder, Jace wished to meet Marc-Andre Fleury, the Knights goaltender. "I wanted to shoot on him," Jace notes.

He had the opportunity to do that and more. After changing in his personalized locker in the Knights dressing room, Jace hit the ice with Fleury and his teammates, took a few shot on his idol (and scored against back-up goalie Malcolm Subban) and faced the press in a post-practice scrum. Later Jace took in the Knights' game against Nashville, sitting on the bench to watch the warm up then visiting the team in their dressing room after the game.

 "This wish was an amazing reward for all the tough times Jace has had to endure," says his mom. "He feels so special getting to experience something not many others do. Seeing both our boys glow with delight at every moment was breathtaking. We are forever grateful."
