Canadiens' Carey Price travelling to New York for medical re-evaluation

Updated: May 20, 2022

On Tuesday, the Montreal Canadiens announced that Carey Price would be travelling with the team to New York City to undergo medical evaluations. He will be meeting with the doctor who operated on his knee back in 2021.

This is just the latest setback from a full-time return to action for the goaltender.

"It's tough to tell, he will continue to get evaluated so it's tough to comment on that before we get all the information," said Canadiens interim coach Martin St. Louis. "I'm happy that he was able to play but we'll see what the next few days will bring."

Price made his season debut on April 15 when the Canadiens hosted the New York Islanders. He has since started in four games, posting a .853 SV% and 4.04 GAA in four losses (0-4-0).

His most recent game was in a 6-3 loss to the Ottawa Senators last saturday.

"I thought it was a big plus for him to fight and get back from dealing with his injury," St. Louis said. "But we knew that him playing, we knew that is it wasn't going to be smooth sailing. We knew there were possibilities and I think that's where we're at and that's why he's getting looked at."
