The Make A Wish foundation made it possible for the teenager to meet the team.

DETROIT, MICH. - A West Michigan teenager, who is a huge fan of the Detroit Red Wings, recently had his wish come true.

Chase Van Eck, 13, of Holland, has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, which is a genetic disorder commonly known to cause progressive muscular degeneration and weakness.

Van Eck is a Make-A-Wish kid, and he wished to go to the first Red Wings game at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit.
