The Sharks signed Sam Tageson, lifelong fan with a congenital heart condition to a 1-day contract. This allowed him to practice and spend the day with players, and made him the first-ever non-player in team history to skate during pre-game and stand with players during the national anthem.

“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson
