Price (knee) is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks, though that timeline remains uncertain according to general manager Marc Bergevin, Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com reports.

Based on that timeline, Price could be ready in time for the start of preseason action, which would be a significant boost for the Habs and fantasy players alike. The 33-year-old veteran logged just 25 regular-season contests this year in which he posted a 12-7-5 record and 2.64 GAA and one shutout. In the postseason, the netminder produced significantly better numbers as he went 13-9 with a 2.28 GAA in 22 games on his way to the Stanley Cup Final.
