The Minnesota Wild turned six kids affected by cancer into all-stars Tuesday.

The Wild recognized Grant Klein, Drew Giuliani, Emma Dodge, Griffin Dahmen, Noah Miller, and Olivia Adams, who each has battled the disease, as Hockey Fights Cancer all-stars Tuesday and gave each child a poster of him or her to make each look like a member of the team.

The children were invited to a photo shoot Nov. 1 where they were dressed up in Wild attire and lavender capes. Unbeknownst to them, the Wild blew up the photos and turned them into personalized posters, then sent one to each child to have as a keepsake.

The reactions, as expected, were priceless.

The Wild honored each child, along with many other cancer fighters, during their Hockey Fights Cancer Awareness Night game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
