Check out this awesome story from the Detroit Red Wings about a Lapeer West student, Tristan Parent, who had the opportunity to spend some time with one of his hockey heroes recently.

From the Detroit Red Wings:

DETROIT – A postseason MVP in his own right, Tristan Parent was rendered speechless at first when his hockey idol and playoff MVP equivalent startled him near center ice Monday morning at Joe Louis Arena.

Astonished to turn around and see Red Wings center Henrik Zetterberg appear before him, the usually loquacious teenager was quickly awash in goose bumps, a contagious smile stretched from ear to ear. While it took a moment for Tristan to holster the excitement, it was evident that the 2008 Conn Smythe winner got a kick out of surprising the 15-year-old from Lapeer, Mich.

There is also a great video attached to the story. Check it out!
