The Prices already have two daughters, 4-year-old Liv and Millie, who will turn 2 in December.
During an interview three years ago after Liv attended her first Canadiens team-photo day at the Bell Centre with her parents, Price was asked what was the best parenting lesson he learned from his father, Jerry.
Price said it was to remain calm.
“A child really feeds off your emotions, so being able to have a steady and calm presence in any situation is a good thing,” Price said. “Don’t be quick to anger. My dad’s a very mellow person and I think that was huge for me as a kid.”
During a phone interview two months ago while the Canadiens were competing in the playoffs in Toronto and she was staying with her parents in Kennewick, Wash., Angela said Price’s father is “the calmest, most patient person you’ll ever meet.”
When asked what people would be surprised to know about her husband, Angela said: “That’s a good question. He really is the person you see. A man of few words even at home. Like when I talk to him after he’s played an awesome game or got a shutout and I go: ‘Babe, you played great.’ He’ll say: ‘Yeah, the team played well.’ It’s the same response he gives the media. That’s really him. He’s not going to talk about himself. What you see is what you get, I guess.
“People might think sometimes it’s calculated or that maybe he’s lacking heart or passion sometimes when he doesn’t speak up,” Angela added. “But that’s really who he is. On the ice, off the ice, at home with the kids.”
Price and Angela met while he was playing junior for the Tri-City Americans in her home town. Angela knew almost nothing about hockey at the time and the first two times she went to watch Price play, he was terrible.
“People were saying: ‘You need to stop seeing this girl,'” Angela recalled with a chuckle, noting people thought she might be a jinx, “which is probably why we ended up together. When you tell 17-year-olds they can’t see each other it’s always going to push them closer together. So that was our first couple of weeks of dating, which was funny.”
What first attracted her to Price?
“He was kind of the first Canadian I ever met, which might sound funny,” Angela said. “But he had this accent and he was very good looking, cute. He was different from all the guys back home, which was intriguing.
“He was so humble about his hockey career,” she added. “I never knew how good he was because the first two games I was him he wasn’t great.”
