Jacob Brown is not your average 12 year old living in Huntsville, Alabama attending the TPH Center of Excellence. Brown was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at age 9. This fight however has not changed Brown’s passion and desire for the game of hockey. An avid Huntsville Havoc fan, Brown was named captain of the Southern Professional team back when he was diagnosed.

Now 12-year-old, Brown went from being on the Make A Wish Foundation’s waiting list, to on a flight out to Los Angels with his family to sign a two-day contract with the Kings.

Brown took the ice with the team joining them in practice, taking warm ups with the team and of course wining the opening faceoff against Arizona Coyotes captain, Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

We are excited for this incredible opportunity  and we will always have Jacob’s back in his fight on and off the ice.
