Fulfilling a dream
If nothing else ever happens in Colin's hockey career, he'll always be able to tell the story of how one night, when he was 10 years old, he took part in an NHL game between his two favorite teams -- the Boston Bruins and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Beyond his game-opening skate, to the thumping beat of AC/DC's Thunderstruck, at a sold-out Tampa Bay Times Forum, the Lightning Dream Kid experience also featured:
~ greeting the Lightning players as they made their way onto the ice; and
~ hanging out with Tampa Bay's Nate Thompson on the blueline during the national anthem.
There's also a behind-the scenes photo gallery of the night's events.
Special thanks to Kelli Yeloushan of the Tampa Bay Lightning for making a kid's dream come true.
