12 Year Old Wyatt Nelson of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan got thrill of a lifetime this past Tuesday at Scottrade Center. Nelson was asked to broadcast part of the Blues vs Sharks Game 2 of their playoff series on KMOX radio. Why was Nelson bestowed this honor? The 12 year old broadcasts his local Saskatoon hockey team games to his father, Gerry Nelson, who is blind. Wyatt began "broadcasting" games for his Dad when one of the contests was not being broadcast on their local radio station. Blues broadcaster Kelly Chase, a native of  Saskatoon, heard about Wyatt's special broadcasting and asked him to come to St. Louis to broadcast a real NHL playoff game. The 12 year old, his Mom and Dad gladly accepted the invitation.

Fox 2 Sports reporter Charlie Marlow talked with the father and son Nelson and their cool journey to St. Louis.
