    Canadiens' Carey Price: Taking leave from team

    Carey Price (knee) will be stepping away from the team while taking part in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program.Price -- who was also dealing with a knee injury -- will now be taking an indefinite leave of absence from the Montreal Canadiens. While the veteran netminder is away, Jake Allen figures to take over as the No. 1 option in goal with Samuel Montembeault serving as the backup.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Won't practice ahead of season

    Per coach Dominic Ducharme, Carey Price (knee/illness) won't be able to practice with the Montreal Canadiens before the regular season starts, Eric Engels of reports.Price was already limited throughout training camp while continuing to recover from offseason knee surgery, but he's now dealing with an illness that will prevent him from taking the necessary steps to return to practice with his teammates prior to Montreal's regular-season opener versus Toronto next Wednesday. The Canadiens plan to ease Price back in once he recovers from his illness, so it's safe to assume the 34-year-old netminder won't be available for the Habs' first two games of the season at a minimum. With Price set to miss time, Jake Allen will enter the 2021-22 campaign as Montreal's de facto No. 1 netminder.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Looking unlikely for Opening Night

    Carey Price (knee) -- who was expected to get on the ice Monday but came down with an illness -- seems poised to miss Opening Night against Toronto on Oct. 13. Coach Dominique Ducharme told reporters, "The more we go along, we're starting to have less confidence he'll be ready for Game 1. If he's not, it won't be long after that," Eric Engels of reports.Given this latest news regarding Price's availability, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Habs opted to snag Samuel Montembeault off waivers Saturday. Even if Price doesn't miss an extended chunk of time, Montreal starts the season with a back-to-back, which likely means Jake Allen and Montembeault will split those contests. Once healthy, Price will absolutely take his place as the No. 1 option between the pipes, though Allen has certainly shown himself capable of spelling Price from time to time.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Set to field shots Monday

    Carey Price (knee) is set to return to the ice and start fielding shots Monday, but it's still too early to tell if he'll be ready for Montreal's Opening Night matchup with Toronto on Oct. 13, John Lu of reports.Although Price is clearly making progress in his recovery, it still seems likely that he'll miss a few contests to start the 2021-22 campaign. That notion is reinforced by the fact that the Montreal Canadiens have the luxury of trotting out a quality backup in Jake Allen until Price is fully healthy. Additional updates on Price's status should continue to surface as Opening Night approaches.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Expected to miss all of camp

    Carey Price (knee) is expected to miss the entirety of Montreal's training camp.Price was originally expected to be ready for Opening Night after undergoing knee surgery in late July, and that still may be the case, but the fact that he's set to miss the entirety of training camp suggests there's a good chance he may be forced to miss some regular-season action, too. Either way, the Montreal Canadiens will likely elect to put an emphasis on managing Price's workload throughout the campaign, so expect backup Jake Allen to get plenty of work. Check back for updates on Price's status as we approach Montreal's Oct. 13 Opening Night matchup with the Maple Leafs.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Undergoes knee surgery

    Carey 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.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Facing 6-8 week absence

    Carey 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 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.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Not selected by Kraken

    Carey Price (knee) will not be selected by Seattle in Wednesday night's Expansion Draft, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.There was speculation that Price would be selected by the Kraken primarily due to his immense marketability, but the veteran netminder's questionable health and massive $10.5 million annual salary evidently were enough to make the NHL's latest expansion franchise steer clear. Price is set to visit a specialist in New York this week regarding knee and hip injuries, so his outlook for the 2021-22 campaign should become clearer in the coming days.

    Canadiens' Carey Price: Slated to visit doctor

    Carey Price will visit a doctor in New York this week regarding knee and hip issues, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.Price waived the no-movement clause in his contract recently and is available to the Kraken in Wednesday's Expansion Draft as a result. While there's hope that his injuries aren't serious, the knee issue could reportedly lead to surgery. The 33-year-old netminder will be an appealing player for Seattle to consider Wednesday after he helped lead Montreal to the Stanley Cup Final this year, but his health could be a concern heading into the draft.
