    About a week after the "Mighty Quinn" received the great news that his latest MRI scan showed he has no new disease, his family announced that the beloved 3-year-old will drop the puck at an upcoming Bruins game.

    Quinn Waters, the Weymouth, Massachusetts toddler whose brain cancer left him in isolation at his home for months, will do the honor of dropping the puck on Oct. 29, when the Bruins take on the San Jose Sharks.

    "He won't ever be able to play a contact sport like hockey, but he is already one of the Boston Bruins littlest biggest fans," Waters' family said in a Facebook post.

    In the Facebook post, Bruins forward Charlie Coyle is holding an "I Fight For…The Might Quinn" sign.
