Gold Medal Winner Price Returns to Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash - Tri-City Americans goalie Carey Price is back in town, and sporting some new hardware!  Price returned from the World Junior Hockey Championships late Saturday night to a crowd of welcoming fans and teammates; all of whom were eager to see a brand new gold medal!  Price slowly removed the medal from his c.d. case, and handed to his teammates.  One of his teammates remarked, "I've seen golder!"  They all took their turns holding the precious award as the tournament's most valuable player signed autographs and tried as hard as he could to smile despite not sleeping for over two days!  Price will now rejoin his team when they play Chilliwack this Wednesday.
