I am not a fan of the Sharks, but I applaud this.

Signed him to a one-day contract? Did he get league minimum?

League minimum pro-rated down to a single day would be about 2,000 bucks. Which should just about cover the increases to his insurance premium when you consider he's adding a career in professional hockey to a pre-existing heart condition.

For those of us that can't see videos at work could I get a quick description of it? I'm gathering some of the details by reading the comments you posted.

Seems like a make-a-wish type thing. Kid has life-long heart condition, gets signed to a one-day contract with Sharks, and skated out with them through their shark head thingy. They said it's the first time anyone that was a non-real-player was allowed through there. They didn't say, but it almost looks like he got to stay on the bench for the game. Not sure though.

These still have the videos but the articles provide a little more background.

Very classy.

Lots of sports franchises make an effort in their communities, but still every time you see something like this it warms your heart and breaks it at the same time.

Well, actually he was a signed player that skated through the Shark head.
