Kayleigh Petersen was diagnosed with a condition that leads to kidney and liver failure at a very young age.
Kayleigh received a liver transplant and is now a vibrant eight-year-old who spends her time on things she loves, like playing hockey!
She is a keen hockey player and when the Make-A-Wish Foundation
and the MSG Garden of Dreams Foundation
learned she loved the New York Rangers they got her signed to the team for a day.
Look at her signature! She’ll be signing autographs in no time. Things didn’t stop here, Kayleigh had the full player experience.
Kayleigh was interviewed at a press conference.
Had her player profile put up on the team’s website.
And legendary NY Ranger, Adam Graves even inspected her hot pink gear.
When it was go time, Kayleigh hit the ice like a pro.
She fit right in during the player line-up.
Captain Ryan McDonagh welcomed Kayleigh to the team.
And so did the rest of the boys.
Kayleigh had the best seat in the house for warm-ups.
Her night was capped off with meeting “The King” Henrik Lundqvist.
I think this hug speaks for how much Kayleigh enjoyed her day as a New York Ranger.
