Price (leg) will miss at least six weeks but will not require surgery. Price was earlier confirmed to miss at least a month with the issue, but now that has been extended to a minimum of six weeks. The team still hasn't revealed the exact nature of the injury, but reportedly related to the injury that sen him to IR earlier in the season. Mike Condon should continue to see the majority of starts in net during Price's absence, with Dustin Tokarski seeing some action as well.
Price (leg) will be out a month, according to the French-language RDS.ca. Francois Gagnon announced the news following Friday night's shootout win over New Jersey on the RDS's post-game show l'Antichambre. Hockey Inside Out indicated the injury is probably to Price's right knee. HIO also has Montreal head coach Michel Therrien saying that Gagnon and RDS knew something that he didn't. The coach added that Price will be examined by doctors when the team gets back to Montreal.
Price (leg) has been placed on injured reserve and will miss at least one week, NHL.com reports. Price was removed from Wednesday's contest against the Rangers, apparently reaggravating the lower-body injury that caused him to miss nine games between the end of October and Nov. 19. On Thursday, the Canadiens recalled goalie Dustin Tokarski from AHL St. John's, serving as Montreal's backup netminder with Mike Condon reportedly drawing the start Friday night against the Devils. With the Habs currently leading the league with 36 points in the standings, there is little incentive to rush Price back from his injury.
Head coach Michel Therrien said after Wednesday's game that Price is dealing with the same right leg injury that sidelined him earlier this season, Amanda Stein of TSN 690 reports. It's not clear exactly what type of injury Price is dealing with, but it is concerning that he is dealing with the same setback that cost him nine games earlier this season. Price has been ruled out for Friday's game, and his status beyond that is uncertain. Mike Condon will once again work as the Canadiens' primary goaltender in Price's absence.
Price has been ruled out of the rest of Wednesday's game against the Rangers with a right-leg injury, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Price appeared to sustain the injury when pushing himself across the crease in the second period of Wednesday's contest. Mike Condon replaced him in net to start the third period, and Price was ruled out of the rest of the game shortly thereafter. It isn't clear if the injury is related to the lower-body ailment that just cost Price nine of Montreal's last 11 games. The Canadiens should provide an update on the star netminder's status after they have an opportunity to evaluate him further.
