Description

 

Born in Anihim Lake, British Columbia, and a member of the Ulkatch First Nation, Carey Price grew up spending much of his time outdoors — hunting, fishing and riding horses. He didn’t start playing organized hockey until he was nine years old, but made up for a late start, becoming one of the best goalies in the NHL. Playing many spectacular seasons for the Montreal Canadiens, Carey has won everything from the Calder Cup to the Venzina Trophy, and from the Indspire Award to Olympic Gold!

Packed with photos and including 16 pages of hockey action comic sequences, this full-colour, easy-to-read biography will teach fans how Carey Price became a player known for taking care of the net, his team, and himself in a way that is uniquely his own.
