After undergoing a liver transplant last year, seven-year-old Carmichael Snider of Canal Winchester wished for Columbus Blue Jackets season tickets. Through the collaborative efforts of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central Ohio and the donation of tickets from the Columbus Blue Jackets, Carmichael’s wish was granted during a surprise presentation during Sunday’s pre-season game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Blue Jackets captain Adam Foote and President and General Manager Doug MacLean presented Carmichael during a special presentation at the fan station at Nationwide Arena.

"On behalf of myself and my teammates and the Make-A-Wish foundation," Foote told Carmichael, "I present to you this pair of season tickets for the upcoming season."

Carmichael and his family was escorted by limousine to pre-game dinner at bd’s mongolian barbeque in the Arena District before watching the game from a private suite with additional food and drink provided compliments of Sportservice.

Carmichael also participated in the ceremonial puck drop to start the game.
