"Just skating with the guys (was the best part)," Zachary Wertz said.
VOORHEES, New Jersey (WPVI) -- The newest Philadelphia Flyer is only 9 years old.
Zachary Wertz of Egg Harbor, New Jersey signed a two-day contract with the team on Tuesday.
The young Flyers fan underwent a life-changing liver transplant.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation had planned to grant his wish of a hockey dream back in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed that from happening until now.
Following his signing, the 9-year-old forward and his family had a front-row seat to the team's practice at the Flyers Training Center in Voorhees.
Then it was Zachary's turn!
He suited up and skated with the team.
Zachary also received a signed jersey form his favorite player, Travis Konecny.
After practice, Zachary took a tour of the Flyers locker room and training center facilities.
"Just skating with the guys (was the best part)," Zachary said.
He also signed an autograph for Morgan Frost.
Zachary is not just a hockey fan.
He says when he grows up he wants to play baseball, but still "represent Philly."
