Discover teamed with Make-A-Wish and the NHL to grant the wish of 13-year-old Arvada, Colo., resident, Logan Piz, who wished for a chance to spend a day with the Stanley Cup and share it with friends and family. Logan was surprised with the Stanley Cup May 15 at The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children in Denver where he is currently being treated for Ewing’s sarcoma. Joining Logan were his mother and father, Tammy and Ron, and his brother, Hayden. Logan shared the Stanley Cup visit with the doctors and nurses who have tended to him during his treatment, as well as other cancer patients and their families.

After the hospital visit, Logan’s ultimate hockey experience continued when he surprised his Arvada hockey teammates with the Stanley Cup at the Apex Center in his hometown. Logan walked the Stanley Cup out on the ice where his teammates were able to spend time with the coveted trophy and take pictures. As an additional surprise to Logan, he and his teammates were joined on the ice by Logan’s favorite hockey player, Jean-Sébastien Giguère, goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche.
