LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Vegas Golden Knights and Make-A-Wish Southern Nevada granted two young boys' wishes to meet goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury on Feb, 15.

Eight-year-old Jace, who has a blood disorder, and 12-year-old Jay, who has a heart condition, joined Fleury at the Golden Knights practice at City National Arena.

Each signed a one-day contract in a ceremony with team GM George McPhee, had personalized lockers in the players' locker room at City National Arena, and took to the ice with Fleury and the entire Golden Knights team for a special practice.

At the Golden Knights vs. Nashville Predators game on Feb. 16, the boys will watch warm-ups from the bench.
