  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Timeline uncertain
    By RotoWire Staff

    Price (lower body) is focusing on his off-ice recovery with his return to skating deemed "undetermined" by coach Claude Julien, Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal reports. While Price has been optimistic regarding a nearing return, his exclusion from on-ice activities would seem to be a step in the wrong direction. Compounded by the club's decision to pick up Antti Niemi off waivers, the 30-year-old Price's status couldn't be any murkier. Look for Charlie Lindgren to continue to deputize in the British Columbia native's stead.

  • Price (lower body) will not skate Tuesday or Wednesday because he feels that his recovery has not progressed the way he wanted it to, but insists that he will be back on the ice soon, John Lu of reports. Lu further reports that Price's injury occurred during pregame warmups Nov. 2 in Minnesota, a game that the goalie ended up playing, but said the ailment bothered him the next day. As a result, it seems unlikely that the 30-year-old will be able to return for Thursday's contest against Arizona, which was his original target date, but could be in line to come back Saturday against Toronto should he return to practice soon.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Return date unknown
    By RotoWire Staff

    Price (lower body) will not return to game action until he participates in a full practice with his teammates, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. Price was on the ice again Monday, working out for a half-hour with goalie coach Stéphane Waite, but a return before the weekend remains slim. Charlie Lindgren will start Tuesday against the Blue Jackets and we'll revisit the goalie situation leading up to Thursday's home game against the Coyotes.

  • Price (lower body) may be close to a return, according to Canadiens owner Geoff Molson, Sportsnet reports. A clear timetable wasn't given for Price's return to game action, but the celebrated backstop reportedly hit the ice for a 30-minute practice session with the team's goalie coach Monday. The Habs have won four of the last five games that he's been out -- thanks in large part to rookie Charlie Lindgren, who's posted a skinny 1.24 GAA and equally impressive .964 save percentage to complement three wins in the last four contests. There's reason to believe Lindgren will get the start against the visiting Blue Jackets on Tuesday, but it's always recommended to check back for official confirmation closer to puck drop just to be sure.

  • Price (lower body) was officially placed on injured reserve Friday, Eric Engels of reports. Universally regarded as an elite backstop, Price has been a highly frustrating player to own this season. He's only won three of 11 starts with putrid rate stats -- including a 3.77 GAA, .877 save percentage and a goose egg in the shutouts column. Price's move to IR was necessitated by Al Montoya (upper body) sustaining an injury of his own, and it allowed the Habs to call up Zach Fucale from AHL Laval ahead of Saturday's home game against the Sabres. Still, we can't think of a better time to buy low on Price, who has three Olympic Gold Medals and the 2015 Vezina Trophy -- among several more awards -- on his mantel.
