Nicholas Gagne, 10, has a degenerative muscle disorder known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
The Montreal boy makes annual trips with his family to Columbus, Ohio, to be seen by specialists at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
In August, his trip to the hospital led to a chance meeting with some Columbus Blue Jackets players.
During his appointment, he mentioned that he wanted to visit the Nationwide Arena. A nurse called the Blue Jackets Foundation director and quickly set up a visit with a few of the players who live in the city during the off-season.
It didn't end there. The players agreed to a second meeting — one during the regular season.
Last Wednesday, Nicholas met the entire team, hung out in the dressing room and watched the Blue Jackets practice. He needed his father, grandfather and sister's help to carry all the sticks, pucks, posters and hats the team gave him.
