Carey Price is one of five Montreal Canadien players who has been selected to play in the World Cup of Hockey this September.
It remains to be seen if he will play for Team Canada given he is coming off a serious knee injury which sidelined him for much of the 2015-16 NHL season. Other participants in the tourney are: Andrei Markov and Alexei Emelin (Russia), Max Pacioretty (USA), Tomas Plekanec (Czech Republic). The snubbing of P.K. Subban by the Canadians, however, was the bigger news in Montreal regarding the World Cup. May 28 - 9:35 AM

Carey Price (knee) stated last month that he probably would have been ready to play if the regular season lasted two weeks longer.

He is hoping to play for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey in Toronto in September, but chose not to attend the World Championship in Russia because he wanted to be with his wife for the birth of their daughter. Liv Anniston Price was welcomed into the world this past Friday.

Brendan Gallagher admitted that losing Carey Price to a knee injury earlier this season played a huge role in Montreal's collapse.

Without Price, the Canadiens missed the playoffs by 14 points. "Every year I’ve been here, he’s had to ability to steal some games," Gallagher said. "It’s not to take anything away from the goalies we had this year, they did an awesome job of battling but they’re not Carey Price. We finished with 82 points and I think we could have found a way to win the seven games we needed to make the playoffs."

Carey Price will not play in either Montreal's last two games of the regular season.

The Canadiens released a detailed report of his injury for the first time. He suffered an MCL sprain to his right knee on Nov. 25 against the Rangers. Price had an acute, isolated MCL injury, so the ailment could be rehabilitated and treated without the need for surgery. "Although Carey has made excellent progress and is very close to being able to return to competition, he has not presently been cleared to do so," said Canadiens' head physician, Dr. Vincent Lacroix. "He is expected to make a full recovery over the off-season. This injury was not the same as the one he suffered earlier this season (October 29th at Edmonton), nor in previous years."
Apr 6 - 11:04 AM

Carey Price (lower body) has practiced with the Canadiens for two consecutive days.

"I’d like to play tomorrow, but I don’t have a set time to come back yet. Every day, I come in and see how I feel. I feel like it’s more of a day-to-day thing now," Price said. He doesn't have his full range of motion yet and his timing needs some work too after being out of commission for so long. It's not clear if he'll be able to return before the season ends, but at the least it sounds like he will be healthy for the summer and consequently should be okay for the start of training camp.
Apr 1 - 2:54 PM

Carey Price (lower body) joined his teammates on the ice Thursday morning.

He will travel with the team to Florida for Saturday's match and the Canadiens are still hoping that Price will play before the end of the season. He hasn't seen game action since Nov. 25 because of a suspected knee injury.
Apr 1 - 8:51 AM

Carey Price (lower body) isn't ready to start practicing with the Canadiens.

There has been some talk that Price might even play next week, but Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said such predictions were premature. While Price is making progress either way, with so little time left in the 2015-16 campaign we wouldn't be surprised if he ultimately didn't return before the end of the season.
Mar 11 - 12:12 PM

Carey Price (lower body) skated in full equipment on Monday before practice.

He was joined by fellow injured-reserve list players David Desharnais and Nathan Beaulieu. There isn't a timetable available for his return and there has been plenty of speculation that he won't play before the end of the season even though he is hoping that won't be the case.
Mar 8 - 10:33 AM

Carey Price (lower body) is still hoping to play this season.

Price disputed the idea that the fact that Montreal's chances of making the playoffs are slim should lead to him simply staying on the sidelines to maximize the amount of time he's able to rest and recover. "It's not a matter of protecting me; I'm going to play regardless," Price argued. "I'd rather do it sooner than later." There's still no timetable for Price's return, so just because he wants to play this season doesn't necessarily mean that he will be able to.
Mar 3 - 2:15 PM

Carey Price (lower body) will be on the ice in his equipment Friday afternoon.

Price has skated before, but he previously was doing so without wearing his gear so this can be taken as an encouraging step forward. It's still not clear how far away he is from returning though or if Montreal will be close enough to a playoff position for him to be able to help them salvage the campaign once he's finally healthy. It's worth adding that Price will not join the Canadiens on their upcoming four-game road trip from Feb. 29 through March 5.
Feb 26 - 12:40 PM

Carey Price (lower body) is unlikely to play again this season, according to La Presse.

La Presse suggests that Price's injury is a Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) and while the Canadiens aren't optimistic about his outlook for the remainder of the regular season, they don't want to admit that publicly. The reason why Montreal is hesitant to suggest that Price's chances of return are all-but gone is for marketing reasons, according to La Presse. In response, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said, "Carey is working out extremely hard in the gym. He's not doing that to maintain his beach body."
Feb 12 - 12:36 PM

Carey Price (lower body) was on the ice for about 40 minutes on Thursday.

Price wasn't wearing any equipment though. He has been skating for a little bit now, but we're waiting to see when he'll be ready to do something more intensive. Price last played on Nov. 25.
Feb 11 - 11:44 AM

Carey Price (lower body) skated Wednesday and did some stick-handling.

He still isn't wearing his goaltending equipment and a return doesn't appear to be close. Price hasn't played since Nov. 25 because of a suspected knee injury.
Feb 10 - 5:03 PM

Carey Price (lower body) was on the ice again Thursday for a solo skate without his goaltender equipment.

He has been seen walking with a limp and his skates haven't been that encouraging either because they have looked tentative. Price has been out since Nov. 25 with a lower-body injury, which is believed to be to a right knee problem. It still isn't clear when he'll be available to return, but it doesn't look like that will be any time soon.
Feb 5 - 8:30 AM

It doesn't sound like Carey Price is even close to returning.

Price hasn't played since Nov. 25 and at this point it's getting reasonable to wonder if he'll be back at all in 2015-16. His injury has been a tough pill for the Canadiens to swallow as they won their first nine games this season, but now own a 24-23-4 record and are in the midst of a free fall. Justly or not, the Canadiens' collapse since Price's injury has fed into the narrative that they're not a particularly strong team without their star goaltender.
