Carey Price showed why he's a class act in a video shared from last Saturday's Leafs and Habs game in Toronto. Following the Habs' morning skate, Price met with 11-year-old Anderson Whitehead, who lost mother, Laura McKay to cancer last year.
Before she passed, Laura promised her son she'd do everything in her power for the two to one day meet in person.
Although she's no longer with us, her promise was fulfilled, as Price shared an emotional hug with Anderson and later signed sticks and a puck for the young Habs fan.
Price is Anderson's idol, and even offered to sign his jersey for him, too, in what was truly a wholesome moment for Anderson, who, understandably, couldn't hold back the tears.
Carey Price was a class act,” Tammy Whitehead, Anderson’s aunt, who recorded the video and uploaded the video to her Facebook.
“Words cannot describe how much this meant to Anderson and we are forever grateful to this wonderful man.”
“Last year as Anderson’s mom was dying of cancer she promised she would do everything she could to make his dream come true. Unfortunately, she passed away before that could happen but through some very kind and generous friends we were able to arrange a visit to the morning skate.
“As you can see in the video, Carey Price was a class act not only giving Anderson two signed sticks, a signed puck, signing his jersey and mini stick but he also gave him the biggest hug. Words cannot describe how much this meant to Anderson and we are forever grateful to this wonderful man.”
At the time of this being published, the beautiful video has over 2,000,000 views on Facebook.
Well done, Carey.
