Robin Lehner helped Jack Foley complete his checklist Monday.
The New York Islanders goalie met with the 7-year-old fan and gave him the stick he requested after their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Nassau Coliseum.
Foley was born with half a heart and went through three open-heart surgeries in his first two-and-a-half years, including one at four days old. His mom Lauren Kiefer-Foley shared a video where Jack asked Lehner to help him finish the checklist.
Lehner was all for helping Foley and took it one step further by agreeing to meet with him after New York's 2-1 loss.
"I'm going to go meet a fantastic human being and see what life's about," Lehner said. "I'm really looking forward to it. It's going to put a smile on my face and make me forget about this one."
Foley, whose mom refers to him as "my half-hearted hockey player," was told he'd likely never participate in athletic activities, but has overcome the odds to complete a triathlon in 2017 and plays hockey on Long Island now.
"He's defying all the doctors' odds," Kiefer-Foley told MSG-Plus. "He's doing every single thing they said he never would."
