Eight-year-old Alex Bray's wish was granted on Friday when he was able to meet Colorado's players through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Alex, who hails from Berthoud, CO, attended Friday's morning skate, was presented with a personalized jersey, met the entire team and was served dinner in the Blue Sky Grill, compliments of the Avalanche.
Alex was also able to sit on the bench during warmups prior to Colorado's game against the Edmonton Oilers.
