Carey Price injury: Canadiens goaltender leaves practice

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

According to several sources, Price left practice earlier today with an apparent injury.

Oh boy... So much for the grace period before Habs depression sits in. Carey Price being injured would be a serious blow to the Montreal Canadiens. Obviously we don't know the severity of it, which means it could be nothing at all, but Price has been the MVP for the Canadiens this year, so the apparent injury will draw a lot of focus.

Price is coming off of a gold medal performance for Team Canada at the Olympics where he was named the tournament's best goaltender, and wasn't expected to start against the Red Wings tonight or the Penguins tomorrow, so he will have the time to rest if the injury is minor, possibly returning to action against the Maple Leafs on Saturday as planned.

Price has put up a .925 save percentage so far this season for Montreal in 38 games played, compiling a 26-17-5 record with 4 shutouts.

UPDATE: Carey Price will not return to practice, and more information will be given when MIchel Therrien gives his post-practice press conference.

UPDATE: Price will not dress for either of the next two days, and Dustin Tokarski has been called up from the Hamilton Bulldogs.
