Out of Spokane, Wash., comes a wonderful story of a top up-and-coming hockey player and NHL Draft prospect, and his two moms.

Jaret Anderson-Dolan plays for the Spokane Chiefs, a junior ice hockey team, and has been tearing up the ice. This season the 17-year-old posted 76 goals in 72 games and was selected to captain Canada’s U18 team, which finished fifth at the World Championship.

All the while he hasn’t been shy about celebrating his two moms, Fran and Nancy Anderson-Dolan, as featured in a piece by The Spokesman-Review.

A couple months ago the hockey player posted this picture with this message:

Happy #internationalwomensday to all the amazing women out there. I was raised by lesbian moms who have worked tirelessly to support me. I want to show my support for my moms and the rest of the wonderful women who bless my life everyday. I support women's rights. #adaywithoutawoman

Earlier this season, when he wrapped his hockey stick in Pride Tape, the rest of the team followed suit.

Anderson-Dolan is eligible for the NHL Draft this season and is expected to be drafted somewhere around the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft.
