Carey Price: A Country Music Fan between the Pipes

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst INovember 9, 2008

For his first NHL match against Pittsburgh, Price wore a plain white mask. It didn’t take long for him to display his lifestyle on his mask.

Raised in a farming community in Anahim Lake, B.C., he enjoys riding horses during summer days and listening to country music.

His first mask was designed by Swedish artist Dave Gunnarsson. It had a cowboy and a horse on one side and a cowboy riding a bull on the other.

With a family who’s religious with strong values, he also had a holy cross and a ‘Support our Troops’ ribbon painted on a blue background.

The word Habs was on the chin and the Canadiens logo on the top of his head.

“I’m a western boy and, for as long as I can remember, I’ve been a big rodeo fan,” Price said.

Soon after, Price used a new mask. This mask had country singer George Strait pictured on the right and Garth Brooks on the left, both playing guitars.

Named True American Legends, the mask features the Canadiens logo on the top, the word Habs on the chin and the “Support our Troops” ribbon is still on the back.
