Price underwent successful knee surgery Friday and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2021-22 season.
Price's knee issue may have been part of the reason the Kraken elected not to take him in the Expansion Draft, but it appears he'll be ready to go on Opening Night next season. The veteran netminder was tremendous in the playoffs, leading Montreal to the Stanley Cup Final with a 2.28 GAA and a .924 save percentage in 22 appearances. He'll look to build on that momentum next season and improve on the lackluster .901 save percentage and 2.64 GAA he posted during 2020-21. Price is expected to face a 10-12 week recovery.
