Sharks pull out all the stops for super-fan Tageson

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 3:39 PM / News

Sam Tageson has long worshipped the San Jose Sharks as his favorite NHL team. But even he was overwhelmed when the organization decided to dedicate an entire day to one of its biggest fans.

Working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Sharks pulled out all the stops for Tageson, 18, a lifelong fan struggling with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a life-threatening heart condition. Tageson was informed two weeks ago that he would be spending the day with his favorite team. But that wasn't enough to prepare him for the special day at SAP Center at San Jose.

It started Tuesday morning when Tageson officially signed a one-day contract with the club, complete with an appearance by Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and the obligatory media scrum. Surrounded by reporters and photographers, it was just the first in a series of thrilling moments for Tageson, who has been playing hockey since age 6.
