Anderson Whitehead is the little boy who lost his mother to cancer and then got to meet Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price after a Habs morning skate earlier this season. Because of that, Anderson was invited on stage last night at the NHL Awards for a special video message from Price. But the star goaltender abruptly cut the video short and strolled onstage to surprise his young fan in-person, presenting Anderson with a crisp new Habs sweater and a personal invite to next winter’s all-star game in St. Louis.
Anderson broke down in tears but Price comforted him. “Everything’s OK. Everything’s OK, Everything’s great,” the mic picked up Price telling him, before turning to the crowd. “How about a round of applause for the young man here?”
