Incredible display of generosity: Highly laudatory remarks for Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens

Carey Price is often perceived as a very cold man, but it's quite the opposite. The Montreal Canadiens goaltender is actually very generous, especially with children.

Indeed, that's what former Habs manager David St-Germain mentions. Price wasn't always comfortable with adults, but with children, he excelled.

"There were players who were really generous (with fans), but who were more in the shadows. [...] There's one in particular (who was extraordinary with fans) and that's Carey Price.

Price, there... He was someone who wasn't comfortable at all with adults he didn't know [...], but Carey Price, I saw him do some beautiful things that I didn't see any other player do in the 6-7 seasons I was there. [...]


He wasn't comfortable being with adults he didn't know, but with children, he was extremely generous.

Once (at one point), he was answering questions from the media and he knew that children were waiting for him, and [he practically cut a press conference in front of the media and] he went to see them.

He got down on his knees, he started talking to the young fans, and you could see that he was in his element.

You could see it in his eyes, that the guy loved taking the time... and he's great with kids! Because kids don't have the stupidity that some adults have." - David St-Germain, former Habs employee, via Stanley25

This is a very nice revelation about the kind of man the famous number 31 of the Canadiens is. I speak in the present because theoretically, he is still part of the team.

There have been many critics of Carey Price over the years, but that's something no one can take away from him.
