Price (leg) was seen walking with a noticeable limp in his right leg following Wednesday night's 4-2 loss to the Flyers, Hockey Inside Out reports. Two months into Price's injury and he's still limping. This does not bode well for the Canadiens, who are currently tied for 12th in the Eastern Conference after a 5-20-1 stretch since early December. Price has done some free skating, but he doesn't appear to be suiting up anytime soon. The Habs may shut him down for the season and get him ready for October.
Price (leg) could be out for another 3-4 weeks with Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin stating that the goalie is "progressing slower than expected," John Lu of TSN Montreal reports. The Habs need Price back in the worst way, having allowed 24 goals through eight January starts while picking up just two wins along the way. Now, Montreal's in sixth place in a competitive Atlantic Division. Price won the the Vezina Trophy for his efforts in the 2014-15 campaign, which included a 44-16-6 record and 1.96 GAA, and undoubtedly commanded a very high draft pick in fantasy drafts ahead of this season. However, just like the Canadiens, those of you rostering him in fantasy leagues have little choice but to wait out his injury. You could trade him away, but understand that would be selling low on arguably the best netminder in the league.
Price (leg) was able to get on the ice and do some light skating on Tuesday, TSN.ca reports. Price has been out since Nov. 25 and is expected to remain out until after the All-Star break. It has been an injury field season for the 28-year-old, suiting up in just three contests since the end of October. When he was healthy, the netminder posted a 10-2-0 record, including two shutouts.
Price (leg) will not return until after the All-Star break at the end of the month, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports. The reigning Hart and Vezina winner has not skated since re-aggravating his leg injury on Nov. 25, and this new development means Price will be out for longer than the initial six-week timetable given on Nov. 30. While Price remains out, Mike Condon will continue to receive the bulk of starts for the Habs.
Price (leg) continues to make progress in his recovery, but is unable to return to skating at this time. Price has been out since the end of November and is progressing slowly. The next step in his recovery will be returning to the ice, something coach Michel Therrien noted the 28-year-old is not quite ready for. Montreal has floundered without their regular netminder, grabbing just four wins in their last 15 contests.
