NHL Goalie Helps Mend A Boy's Broken Heart

When Tammy Whitehead posted a video on Facebook of her nephew getting a hug from Carey Price, she never expected it to go viral. Boy, did it ever. As of Friday afternoon, Whitehead’s video had been viewed more than 5 million times and the people who watched it probably shed at least ten times that many tears. Anderson Whitehead, 11, is a huge Carey Price fan and his bedroom in Brantford, Ont., is covered in bleu-blanc-rouge and posters of the Canadiens goalie. Anderson’s mother, Laura McKay, always wanted her son to meet Price, but wasn’t able to arrange it before she passed last November at age 44 from cancer. After her death, the family decided to do everything they could to find a way for Anderson to meet Price.

We are glad the meeting between these two worked out well!!!
