The St. Louis Blues weren't about to host the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game without their inspiritaional leader.

Laila Anderson, the young superfan battling hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis, won the hearts of the team and their fans during their magical run to the 2019 Stanley Cup title. 

So, with the All-Star Game at Enterprise Center this year, Anderson had to bring out her boys.

Anderson introduced forward Ryan O'Reilly, goalie Jordan Binnington, forward David Perron and captain Alex Pietrangelo, all playing for the Central Division squad, with plenty of energy, sounding like quite the professional announcer.

All four Blues All-Stars had a special greeting for Anderson on their way to the blue line before the game.

She ended the introductions with a boisterous "Let's Go Blues!"
