It’s been quite the highlight-reel week for 12-year-old Brock Chessel

The whirlwind started on Monday, where the hockey fan and stage-four liver cancer survivor was present for the Leafs game against the Anaheim Ducks, and made a special sign that caught Leafs’ forward Mitch Marner’s attention. 



While that in itself was an unbelievably memorable moment, the hockey fun didn’t end there for Chessel.

Yesterday, ahead of the Toronto Marlies game against the Springfield Thunderbirds, Chessel was treated to the full game day experience, and in our opinion, he handled it like a real pro.



Chessel joined the boys for morning skate, where he had his goal-scoring skills on full display, and also impressed with his flawless celebration. Brock recieved a standing ovation when he dropped the ceremonial puck before the game. 

The youngster made fast friends with Marlie Rich Clune, and the two were chirping at one another like old linemates. 


With moves like these and the undeniable fight it takes to beat cancer, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Brock crack the Marlies roster before long.
