CHICAGO (AP) Moments after Jaret Anderson-Dolan was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings, he hugged his mothers Fran and Nancy. They cried a few tears as Anderson-Dolan made his way to the floor of the United Center for handshakes and congratulations from his new team.
It was a slight variation on a familiar picture at the NHL draft. And just another Saturday for the 17-year-old center, who was raised by two women.
"Obviously I don't know any other way of growing up," Anderson-Dolan said . "Even though people may say, obviously, it's a little bit different, but for me it's completely normal. For me, it kind of gives you a little bit of perspective just how much the world is changing, and I think it's come a long way in the past couple of years. It's really cool to kind of be in this situation and have a voice in the community that way."
