The St. Louis Blues have a big fan in 11-year-old Jayden Linden. And he got some big news on Monday.

The young fan juumped for joy and was moved to tears after finding out he was headed to the decisive game between the Blues and Dallas Stars in the Western Conference Second Round. The Blues shared the video on Twitter.

Linden is from Grand Prairie, Alberta, nearly 2,000 miles from St. Louis, the site of Game 7. The note he received in the clip appears to say to "Go pack a bag. We leave at 9 a.m."

Now that's dedication.

Linden is set to be one of the many dedicated Blues backers in attendance to will see one Western Conference Final ticket get punched.

We can't wait either.
