The St. Louis Blues caught wind of Wyatt and Gerry Nelson’s story after their emotional meeting with the Stanley Cup touched the hockey world, and now the Blues are bringing the Nelsons to Game 2 of the Western Conference final.The hockey world met Wyatt and Gerry Nelson last week and watched the incredible story of a son and his blind father, learning how the game brought the two Saskatoon Blades fans even closer. But after the NHL showcased the Nelsons’ story, the St. Louis Blues decided to take things one step further. A camera crew headed to Saskatoon this past Friday, where the Nelsons live, and got to learn more about Wyatt and Gerry, including taking a glimpse at Wyatt’s collection of hockey memorabilia. The visit from the cameras was about more than simply diving deeper into the story of the father and son, though, as the Blues had a special surprise in store for Wyatt and Gerry. During the visit, Gerry received a phone call from Blues GM Doug Armstrong and radio analyst Kelly Chase, a former Blade, inviting both Wyatt and Gerry to Game 2 of the Western Conference final: And from the brief clip in the video of Gerry and Wyatt meeting the Stanley Cup, it sure seems like the younger Nelson has the skill to call a game live.
