All eyes are on Sochi, Russia, today as Anahim Lake’s Carey Price will get the start in goal as Canada’s men’s Olympic hockey team takes on Team USA in the semifinal this morning (Friday, Feb. 21, 9 a.m.).

Price, who got the call in Canada’s opener against Norway and helped lead the team to a 3-1 victory, most recently picked up a 2-1 quarterfinal win over Latvia to lead the Candians into the semifinal.

Today’s contest will be Price’s third start in four games for Team Canada. Residents from Price’s hometown of Anahim Lake and students at Nagwuntl’Oo Elementary School, as well as students throughout School District 27, have kept a close eye on Price’s journey for a potential Olympic gold medal.

The City of Williams Lake has a guest book for Carey Price  located at city hall and is inviting everyone in the community to come out to sign it.
