Hockey is great. Sports are great. Not only because of all the joy they can bring us when we watch games, but because there are so many special moments and stories that come with it.
Here we have 11 year old Anderson. He is a huge Montreal Canadiens fan and an even bigger fan of Carey Price. When his mother Laura was diagnosed with cancer, she made a promise to him that he would one day meet his favorite goalie. Unfortunately she is no longer with us, but that doesn't mean that the dream couldn't come true anyway.
Anderson's family was able to get him into a morning skate before one of Montreal's recent games, and that is where he was finally able to meet his idol. But this video shows us why Carey Price not only an elite athlete, but an elite man as well. He shared a moment with that kid that he will remember for the rest of his life. I don't care what team you cheer for. I have an gained an incredible amount of respect for Carey Price, and sports fans everywhere should absolutely feel the same way.
