Carey Price updates his injury situation

The Canadiens goalie discussed his “minor” injury after practice today

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

One of the hot topics in Montreal right now is the uncertain status of the Canadiens superstar goaltender Carey Price, who has been on the sidelines with a “minor” injury. According to Price it’s taking a bit longer to recover due to the nature of his position, but reiterates that the lower body affliction is indeed minor.

His break from skating today and tomorrow isn’t meant to be serious, just that it no longer feels like there are improvements being made.

In a horrible bit of deja vu, this situation feels very similar to the one that ended his season a few years ago. Price says he was injured in warm-ups, and then stayed in a game where he clearly looked off between the pipes. Charlie Lindgren will likely remain the Canadiens starter for the foreseeable future, and Price himself had some praise for the rookie goalie.

While the team has insisted the injury is not related to the one from a few years ago, it sure seems like the recovery is very similar. The Canadiens play the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight.

Update (12:34 PM EST): Marc Bergevin outlined that he does not currently have a set timeframe for Carey Price’s recovery.
