Braden Neinaber is an 8 year old from Saskatoon, Sask., and completely hockey obsessed. He also has Langerhans cell histiocytosis, a rare disease in which the body produces too many white blood cells, leading to a number of health problems and, in some cases, it can be fatal.



His favorite player is Braden Holtby, goalie for the Washington Capitals. Through the Children’s Wish organization and the Capitals, Neinaber’s dream came true over the weekend: He and his family went to practice to hang with Holtby, and the Capitals had him out on the ice to score goals and simulate fights. He also was given his own jersey and nameplate in the dressing room, according to Yahoo Sports.

But it was a moment before the Capitals’ matinee game against the Buffalo Sabres in D.C. that made Braden Neinaber pretty much the fan of the season so far. He participated in the ceremonial puck drop between Alex Ovechkin of the Capitals and Steve Ott of the Buffalo Sabres, one of the most hated players in the League. So he did what any true fan would do: He threw Ott out of the ceremonial faceoff, to the delight of the home crowd, Yahoo Sports reports.
