LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Huntsville native Jacob Brown spent some time on the ice with the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted Jacob’s wish on November 10 at a Huntsville Havoc game to fly him to Los Angeles for a Los Angeles Kings hockey game.
Jacob Brown started playing hockey at the age of four. He’s always been a huge fan of the Huntsville Havoc and Los Angeles Kings.
In a tweet from FOX Sports West, Jacob said he was “just happy to be on the ice with the Los Angeles Kings.”

It took about a year and a half to grant Jacob’s wish.
“Since with Jacob it was a celebrity wish, we had to reach out to the California Make-A-Wish branch and then reach out to the Kings Association,” said Jacob’s mother, Mary Brown.
Jacob is now in remission after a three-year-long battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
