Habs goalie Price out a while longer with in­jury

The Western Star - - SPORTS -

BROSSARD, Que. - Mon­treal Cana­di­ens goal­tender Carey Price says he is stay­ing off the ice for a lit­tle while longer as he deals with a lower-body in­jury.

Price met with re­porters Tues­day be­fore Mon­treal’s game against the vis­it­ing Colum­bus Blue Jack­ets to pro­vide an up­date on his re­cov­ery.

He said he suf­fered the in­jury in a warmup be­fore Mon­treal’s Nov. 2 game at Min­nesota in which he gave up five goals on 26 shots in a 6-3 loss.

Price, 30, in­sisted the in­jury is mi­nor and that he would “ab­so­lutely” be ready to play if the Cana­di­ens were in the play­offs.

The Cana­di­ens did add some goal­tend­ing depth Tues­day, claim­ing vet­eran Antti Niemi, 34, off waivers from Florida.
