http://www.aftonbladet.se/vss/sport/story/0,2789,964964,00.html The father got tired of driving - bought an airplane: an incredible story. When Team Canada and the best goalie in JWC Carey Price wanted to start playing hockey as a ten year old, closest team was 320 km (200 miles) away. So father Jerry put himself in the car - and drove 640 km (400 miles) on each return trip to the practices three times a week. When he got tired of it he bought an airplane. It sounds incredible. - But it's actually true, says Carey Price when we meet him after Team Canada's third straight win in JWC. - An incredible story. It can only happen in Canada, says Team Sweden's coach Torgny Bendelin. But in a country where hockey is the national sport neither parents nor children see boundaries. - No, I grew up in Anahim Lake, a small fishing village located at the Pacific Ocean in British Columbia. There was no organized hockey. Closest town and team was in Williams Lake and it's 200 miles away, says Carey Price. It's like driving from Stockholm, pass MalmÃ¶ and stop somwhere on the Ã–resund bridge. Three times a week. All Swedish hockey parents know the incredible amount of time spent on driving kids and equipment to practices and games. Bought plane for 80.000 SEK (roughly $11.500 US) But no one living in Stockholm would come up with the thought to let the kids play for HV71 and drive them to practices. That is exactly what Jerry Price did translated to Swedish standards. - But it was alright. I did my homework in the back seat. But in Sweden it's considered too late to start playing hockey when you're ten? What did you do before then? - I played hockey on the backyard with some friends. When the car trips were finished and took its toll, father Jerry bought an airplane - an old, one motor Piper Cherokee, that costed approximately 80.000 SEK. But it served its purpose and Jerry himself absolutely didn't want to sound like some crazed hockey parent. He was himself a promising goalie once and drafted by Philadelphia. But the career ended after a series of serious knee injuries. - The long car trips can sound a little bit odd, but we got to spend alot of time together. The reward came in the draft 2005. Carey Price was picked as number five in the first round (Montreal), which is extremely high for a goalie. But it drowned in the first pick of the draft - Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby. Own notes: Now that's dedication. Crazy Canadians.
