Carey Price returns to full team on-ice activity
Three goalies were on the ice today, including the one and only Carey Price.
The Montreal Canadiens got some good news this morning, hours before they start their home opener with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Carey Price returned to the team’s practice which should alleviate any concerns of conspiracy or that he is still contagious.

Price will not play or be in uniform tonight, but all signs are pointing to an imminent return. Al Montoya, who has been great in his first two starts, will start against the Penguins.
Charlie Lindgren will be the backup.
Meanwhile, due to Price’s absence and Lindgren’s call up, the IceCaps have signed a familiar face in goaltender Yann Danis.
