Van Meeteren Announced as Hot Shot

Carter

Sunday, April 11 against the Omaha Lancers

Parents

Nicole Melton and Eric

 

Carter Van Meeteren, son of Nicole Melton and Eric Van Meeteren of Hull, has been named the April 11, 2021 Hot Shot.  Carter is 6 years old and is a fun loving kid with a unique love of cars.

 

Carter was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS).  HLHS is a critical congenital birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart which needs surgery shortly after birth for survival.  The CDC estimates that 1 out every 3,841 babies in the US are born with HLHS each year.

 

Carter had additional complications and has received a heart transplant.  He is now working hard with physical, occupational and speech therapies at Floyd Valley Healthcare to regain his strength and work on deficits left from his condition and surgery.  He is very much looking forward to his hockey night!

 

Please join us in celebrating Carter, our April 11 Hot Shot!

 

Magnuson Announced as Hot Shot

Preston

Friday, April 23 against the Fargo Force

Parents

Tom and Danielle

 

Preston Magnuson, son of Tom and Danielle Magnuson, has been named the April 23, 2021 Hot Shot.  Preston is 7 years old and attends Franklin Elementary School in Le Mars.  He loves to learn and is a very caring young man that works hard to succeed.

 

Preston has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  ADHD is a medical condition in which a person’s brain development and activity are altered causing trouble in many facets of their daily living.

 

Children diagnosed with ADHD are three times more likely to have language issues.  They can struggle with receptive language (listening and understanding what is being said), expressive language (speaking and being understood) or both.

 

Kids with ADHD can exhibit processing difficulties such as short-term memory weakness, problems following directions, slow processing of written and spoken language and difficulties with basic reasoning skills.  Early interventions including therapy greatly improve the outcome for these children.

 

Preston works hard and enjoys his time with speech therapist Connie Hanson.  Preston learns differently than others, so they work together to find new ways of learning to help him be a successful student.

 

Please join us in celebrating Preston, our April 23 Hot Shot!

This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients with chronic health issues. We are excited to give children an opportunity to have a fun time with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid again for a night.

 

The Hots Shots will travel in a limo to their honor game as special guests of the Musketeers and will receive a commemorative Musketeer jersey, Musketeer memorabilia, an opportunity to meet the team and coaches, be a part of the ceremonial puck drop as well as a special mentions at their game. We invite you to come out and help us cheer on the Musketeers with our Hot Shots!
