It's heartwarming to hear about the special moment in Adam Fantilli's new career as a young hockey player with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The transition from playing on ponds and streets to making it to the NHL is a dream come true for many aspiring players. Fantilli is dedicated and eager to excel in his professional career.


While discussing with the media scrum on his NHL debut, he shared that it was his 19th birthday and he received the best birthday text from a former NHL and Oilers legend Wayne Gretzky.


Gretzky's status as an ambassador to the NHL and his willingness to reach out to and support young players is commendable. Receiving such encouraging words from a hockey icon like Gretzky must have been an unforgettable moment that left a smile on the young player's face.

Despite the Blue Jackets losing their opener, there is still a long season ahead, and they will have the opportunity to bounce back. Hosting the New York Rangers for their next game provides a chance for redemption.

The game is scheduled for 7:00 PM Eastern time, and fans will be eager to see how Fantilli and the team perform as they continue their NHL journey.
