The Great 8 made a great dream come true today.

As part of the Make a Wish Foundation, Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals hosted a special practice for Sam Jacobson.

The 16-year-old has T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, and his life-long dream was to skate with Ovechkin; a dream that came true today.
