ESPN releases promo for Golden Knights’ ‘My Wish’ segment

Golden Knights fans should be ready to have their heartstrings tugged based on a promo for an ESPN “My Wish” segment airing Wednesday.

The teaser for the SportsCenter clip shows Doron Coldwell, a 13-year-old Las Vegas who’s battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma, practicing and fist-bumping with the Knights.

Coldwell got to replace Fleury in net for a day as part of the series, which was created in 2006 through a partnership between ESPN and Make-A-Wish. The segment will re-air as part of a one-hour “My Wish” special on Aug. 11 at 1 p.m. on KTNV-13.

The Knights previously hosted two Make-A-Wish kids in February that Fleury spent time with.
