Carey Price meets players from Indigenous communities
About thirty young players from the Kahnawake Minor Hockey Association were received by the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday, and a special guest came to meet them: none other than Carey Price.
The Habs goalie took the time to sign autographs and talk with the kids. Still wearing his famous cowboy hat, the 35-year-old man also donned one of the sweaters specially created for the evening of celebration of indigenous communities. The Canadiens' players will wear this jersey during the warm-up, before the duel against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the evening, at the Bell Centre.
Remember that Price is from Anahim Lake, a village surrounded by Native American reservations in British Columbia. His mother is also chief of the Ulkatcho First Nation and the hockey player has always wanted to pay tribute to his origins.
Before meeting the goalkeeper, the young players from Kahnawake were able to practice on the Bell Center ice rink during a clinic led by former defender Gaston Gingras. Mike Matheson's wife, Emily, and Jordan Harris' girlfriend, Codie, accompanied them on the ice.
