Canadiens Injury Update: Carey Price should be ready for preseason games

By on 9/16/2014 07:30:00 PM

After months of rehabbing the knee and taking the time needed (not skating again until mid-August), Carey Price says he is almost 100% after suffering from the injury. He expects to be at his best come the start of the preseason.

The Montreal Canadiens had a good playoff run last season. They swept the Tampa Bay Lightning, beat the Boston Bruins and advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals against the New York Rangers. All seemed to be going well until Chris Kreider collided into Price, leaving the Habs goaltender injured.

At first it was not obvious how serious the initial injury was. It started off by being day-to-day until coach Michel Therrien broke the news saying that Price would be out for the rest of the series. Price did not play the rest of the series instead Dustin Tokarski stepped up to the plate and helped his team battle a good series. In the end it was not enough to win the semi's and the Rangers moved on to the finals.

Price has taken the time to recover and now that the new season is approaching he is almost 100% ready to start the season. Price has been skating with his teammates at informal skates for the past couple of days, so it is likely he just needs to continue making it stronger and feeling more comfortable.

Last season Price recorded 34 wins with a .927 save average.
