Cuteness Overload Alert: On Sunday, Montreal Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty took his young son Enzo out to practice with the NHL team.

Enzo, 3, is apparently a huge Carey Price fan, so the father and son took a few minutes to work on shooting with the Montreal netminer and it’s adorable.

After practice was over, the elder Pacioretty spoke with reporters about young Enzo’s experience on the ice with the Habs.


Last Sunday the Canadiens held a rare practice, but Pacioretty still took his sons [Enzo and Max Jr.] to the rink and took them on the ice beforehand, giving Enzo a chance to play a little game of pass with Price, his hero.

“He’s just obsessed with [Price],” Pacioretty said that day. “I can’t wait to go talk to him. He played with [Price] for a bit and he’ll be talking about it forever.”

Pacioretty isn’t the only player to take his kids to work, a few months ago Leafs forward Tyler Bozak was greeted in the pregame skate by his cute little one, Kanon, who was decked out in a custom #42  jersey with “Daddy” on the back.
