Six-year-old Easton was born with a rare disorder that makes it difficult to walk and talk, but has no problem cheering on his favourite hockey team: the Edmonton Oilers.

For one Halloween, his parents even transformed his wheelchair into a makeshift Oilers zamboni, catching the attention of fans online and NHL superstar Connor McDavid alike. Not only did the Oilers captain autograph his jersey, but the entire Edmonton Oilers team signed his zamboni.

For the Stanley Cup finals, the Ontario family drove 30 hours to Edmonton in order to experience the game in person.
