DETROIT - Remember Cortez Warren? We met him for the first time last year.

He had a heart transplant at St. Louis Children's Hospital when he was four years old, and two years ago he was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. He has been symptom-free from both conditions for the last 14 months.

As part of his Make-A-Wish request last year, Cortez asked if he could go on a road trip with the St. Louis Blues. After learning of his request, Blues Chairman Tom Stillman invited Cortez to take a future trip with the team, and that trip was for Wednesday's game against the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.

Cortez met all of the players as they boarded the plane, flew on the team's charter to Detroit and got to watch Wednesday's morning skate before taking in the game.

Watch the video above to see how Cortez learned he would join the Blues on the road, and see photos from his road trip below.
