Team Canada goalie Carey Price and Toronto ice resurfacing machine drivers beware, Liam McCauley has his eyes on your job.

He's only 3 years old, so you have some time, but McCauley looked downright comfortable behind the wheel of a Team Canada-themed ice resurfacing machine Sunday at the Scotiabank World Cup of Hockey Fan Village, located in Toronto's Distillery District.

"He'll be here all day," McCauley's mother, Jennifer, said.

Could you blame him?

The Scotiabank World Cup of Hockey Fan Village is a free fan festival in downtown Toronto that will be open daily through Sept. 25. It is the epicenter for fans throughout the World Cup of Hockey 2016 with something exciting for everyone. The festival celebrates the food, music and culture of all participating hockey nations. Each day will feature live musical performances - an ABBA tribute band was on the schedule for Sunday - NHL players, alumni and celebrities, hockey-themed games and activities and chances to win prizes and tickets to World Cup of Hockey games.

That's what McCauley was doing Sunday. While visiting the Adidas team-themed Zamboni brand ice resurfacing machines, he was also taking the Adidas #GetMeToTheGame social photo daily challenge. By holding up a sign with the hashtag #GetMetoTheGame, then posting the photo to Twitter or Instagram, fans have a chance to win two tickets to a World Cup game.

There's no doubt McCauley would love to win tickets to see Team Canada. It might give Price a chance to look over his shoulder.

"I want to be a goalie," McCauley said. "I want to be like Carey Price."

For now, McCauley and his mom were enjoying the Fan Village.

"It's really impressive how much there is to do," Jennifer said.
