Get The Tissues, This Sharks Fan Just Had His Dream Come True (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Even though the San Jose Sharks lost the game on Tuesday, they won something much bigger.

In association with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the NHL allowed the team to sign 17-year-old Sam Tageson to a one-day contract. Then, after a morning practice with the team and a tour of the Sharks' facility, Tageson got to skate out of the shark tunnel with the team before their showdown against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Tageson, who was born with a heart condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome, was in full uniform when he was introduced with the team and became overwhelmed by emotions.

His new teammates couldn't help but be affected as well.

It was just another reminder that some things are bigger than the game.
