Look how happy he is.
Yesterday, eight-year-old Braden Neinaber — who suffers from Langerhans cell histiocytosis (a disease similar to cancer) — had his wish fulfilled by Braden Holtby, as he got to meet his favorite player and practice with the Washington Capitals. On Sunday, young Braden also participated in the ceremonial face-off before the Buffalo Sabres game.
He did not disappoint.
Before he dropped the puck, Neinaber threw Sabres captain and known pest Steve Ott out of the dot.
