San Jose Sharks sign lifelong fan to one-day contract for Make-A-Wish foundation (Video)

The San Jose Sharks signed 18-year-old Sam Tageson to a one-day contract as part of the Make-A-Wish foundation. He has been dealing with a congenital heart condition his whole life and has been a lifelong fan of the team.

He got to skate with the team through the shark mouth at the beginning of the game.

He was also named star of the game.

Definitely an inspirational story and if you go to the Shark’s Instagram there are a lot more photos of Sam’s day.
