#SharksWishGranted
Sam Tageson took control of the San Jose Sharks Instagram account during his fulfillment of his wish to be a player for the day.

 

On Tuesday, March 18, the San Jose Sharks took part in an incredible day that gave Sam Tageson, a 17 year-old fan living with Left Hypo Plastic Heart Syndrome, the ability to play out his wish of becoming a Sharks player for the day. As part of that wish, he took over the Sharks Instagram account and shared his day through pictures and social media.

 

It was an amazing experience to go out and skate with the Sharks not to mention put it 5-hole on Stalock. ^Sam #sharkswishgranted
