Top Carey Price News

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Will be placed on offseason LTIR

    Price (knee) will be placed on offseason long-term injured reserve Wednesday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Price reportedly has not responded well to treatment for his injured knee and isn't expected to be available for the start of the 2022-23 campaign, so the Canadiens have decided to free up some cap space for the recently-signed Kirby Dach by proactively putting Price on offseason LTIR. Although at this point his future still remains up in the air, it's looking more and more likely that Price's playing days may be over.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Status for 2022-23 in doubt

    Price (knee) has not responded well to treatment and is unlikely to be available to start the 2022-23 season, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    It's expected Price will officially be placed on long-term injured reserve before the season starts. It's also possible Price is unable to play at all in 2022-23, so the Canadiens will likely be leaning more heavily on Jake Allen and Sam Montembeault for the upcoming campaign. Price has four years left on a deal that carries a $10.5 million cap hit, and the future of his playing career is murky at best.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Undergoes knee procedure

    Price (knee) underwent a "small procedure" on his knee recently, and the Canadiens are waiting to see how he responds to it, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    General manager Kent Hughes clarified that it was not an operation that Price underwent, though the specific details are unknown. The goalie was limited to five games in 2021-22 due to a long recovery from knee surgery last offseason, and it appears health will continue to be a concern for him heading into next year.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Meets with specialist

    Price met with a specialist in Pittsburgh regarding his knee following the season, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    According to general manager Kent Hughes, how Price's knee responds to further treatment will be crucial in providing clarity as the Canadiens approach the draft and free agency this summer. If Price's knee doesn't improve, the 34-year-old netminder will likely be forced into an early retirement.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: First win since 2021 postseason

    Price made 37 saves in Friday's 10-2 win over Florida.

    Price has started 700 NHL games, all with Montreal, and has 361 wins. But it was his first win since Game 4 of the 2021 Stanley Cup Final and caps a season he'd prefer to forget. Another offseason of rest and recovery will hopefully fuel a better 2022-23.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: In net for finale

    Price (undisclosed) will start Friday's season finale against the Panthers.

    A recent evaluation must have revealed no risk of injury, as the Canadiens would have no reason to deploy Price in this meaningless game if he wasn't fully healthy. Even with Florida sitting most of its key contributors in preparation for the postseason, Price won't be an advisable fantasy option given his 0-4-0 record, 4.03 GAA and .853 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Heading for evaluation

    Price (undisclosed) will travel with the team to New York (ahead of Wednesday's game against the Rangers) for a medical evaluation.

    Already confirmed unavailable Wednesday, Price will have just one opportunity to return in the team's final game of the season Friday against visiting Florida. Given his injury history and struggles in just four outings this season (4.03 GAA, .853 save percentage), it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't suit up again until 2022-23.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Missing next two games

    Price (rest) will not be available Sunday against Boston or Wednesday against the Rangers, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Price could return for Montreal's season finale against Florida on Friday but it's unclear if he'll be available at this time. The veteran netminder is 0-4-0 with a brutal 4.04 GAA and .853 save percentage since returning from knee and hip injuries this month. Sam Montembeault will start Sunday with Cayden Primeau backing up.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Gives up three in 1:07 in second

    Price made 20 saves in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa on Saturday.

    The game was lost in an ugly second period when the Sens scored three goals in 1:07 to explode out to a 5-1 lead. Parker Kelly started that stretch with a wrist shot in the top left corner on a 2-on-1 at 6:43. Then Josh Norris was credited with a goal at 7:15 when Brady Tkachuk's pass went in off his skate. Mark Kastelic scored his second of the game at 7:50 with a sweet backhand deke in tight. Price remains without a win (0-4-0) since his return and has a 4.04 GAA and .853 save percentage.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Making road start

    Price will patrol the crease during Saturday's road game versus the Senators, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Price struggled in his last start Thursday against the Flyers, allowing six goals on 34 shots en route to a 6-3 loss. He'll try to secure his first win of the year in a road matchup with an Ottawa team that's 13-21-4 at home this season.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Struggles against Flyers

    Price allowed six goals on 34 shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Flyers.

    After getting zero goals of support from Montreal's offense in his first two starts of the season, Price did himself no favors in the third, allowing two goals in each period. James van Riemsdyk scored the first and last goals against Price, and the Flyers added four others in between. Price is 0-3 this season, but the important thing is that he's healthy and should be able to hit the ground running next year.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: Starting again Thursday

    Price will start against visiting Philadelphia on Thursday.

    Price will make his third start of the season after a pair of losses where he allowed just two goals in each but didn't receive a single goal of support by the Canadiens offense. The Flyers have managed an average 2.64 goals for since March 1 (28th overall), which should bode well for the veteran netminder, but the fact the Habs have had trouble finding twine recently is certainly a cause for concern.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: No help in shutout loss

    Price stopped 28 of 30 shots in Tuesday's 2-0 loss to the Wild.

    Price wasn't bad but got no support from his teammates. He's 0-2-0 despite posting an excellent 2.02 GAA and .918 save percentage since making his season debut. Price could provide some late-season fantasy value, though doing so won't be easy considering he plays for a Montreal team that's bringing up the rear in the Eastern Conference standings.

  • Canadiens' Carey Price: In goal versus Wild

    Price will get the starting nod at home against Minnesota on Tuesday.

    Price's season debut was a relatively quiet outing, as he faced just 19 shots, stopping 17 in a losing effort against the Islanders. The veteran netminder will likely continue to see a portion of the workload heading into the final six games of the season but shouldn't be expected to overwork himself considering he missed the majority of the season due to a long-term knee injury.
