Cheering on hometown hero Carey Price

The City of Williams Lake congratulates its hometown hero, Carey Price and the men’s hockey team on their success so far at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games.

Price, who was raised in Anahim Lake and played minor hockey in Williams Lake, was the starting goaltender for Team Canada in the 3-1 win over Norway in the first preliminary game of the men’s tournament Thursday.

A large poster honouring Price is now up at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex.

The public is invited to sign a guest book at the complex and to cheer Price on at the Games.

“The City is so proud of Carey Price, who has gone from goaltending on our own ice here in Williams Lake, to the NHL, and now representing Canada on the grand stage of the Olympic Games,”  Mayor Kerry Cook said. “Carey is an excellent athlete and ambassador of our community, and we will be cheering him and Team Canada on as the team looks to defend its Olympic gold!”
