Carey Price turned aside 32 of 33 shots in Thursday's 2-1 win over Team Europe.
The win allowed Canada to clinch the World Cup. Team Canada was outplayed throughout the evening and they gave up a lot of odd man rushes, but Price bailed them out on numerous occasions. Price has now won 16 consecutive games as Team Canada's starting goaltender. The Canadiens goalie showed that the knee injury he suffered last season is behind him. He looks ready to go for the 2016-17 season. He should be one of the top two goaltenders taken in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 29 - 10:56 PM

Carey Price stopped 32 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Team Europe in Game 1 of the World Cup Final.

Price has been more than just solid throughout this tournament and that's a good sign after he missed most of last season with a knee injury. The 29-year-old has a perfect 4-0 record in the tournament and he's allowed more than two goals just once. Team Canada is just one win away from eliminating Team Europe in this best-of-three final series. They'll have an opportunity to hoist the World Cup with a win on Thursday night.

Carey Price blocked 31 shots in Team Canada's 5-3 win over Team Russia in the World Cup of Hockey on Saturday night.

Price had to survive only seven shots on goal during the first period and eight in the second. Russia scored twice in the second to give Canada a minor scare, but their lead didn't last long and Canada's offense proved to be too hot to handle. The Canadians will meet the winner of Sunday's Team Europe versus Team Sweden match in the finals.

Carey Price will tend Canada's net against Russia in Saturday's semi-final.

Price has turned away 63 of 65 shots faced through his two games of action in the round robin portion of the tournament. He also stopped 24 of 26 against Russia in the prelims. Canada has been utterly dominant thus far in the World Cup and Price is considered the best goalie in the world, so this one should be fun.

Carey Price stopped 34 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Team USA.

The Americans got on the board first when Ryan McDonagh beat Price in the opening frame, but it was all Team Canada after that. Price has looked good in two tournament starts. That's good news for Team Canada, the Montreal Canadiens and his fantasy stock. Through two games, Price has a .968 save percentage in the tournament. Canada will take on Team Europe with first place on the line on Wednesday, but Price will get the night off because Canada isn't willing to play in him twice in two nights.

Sidney Crosby was impressed by what he saw from Carey Price is Saturday's 6-0 win over the Czech Republic.

Price had only played in a handful of pre-tournament games since injuring his knee last November. He didn't appear to be too rusty as he was able to pick up the shutout. "He was just really sharp and like you've seen so many times before, he makes those timely saves," Crosby said of Price. "He makes difficult saves look pretty easy. He did a great job for us tonight." Price probably won't make every start for Team Canada, but expect him to be the number one guy during this tournament.

Carey Price stopped all 27 shots he faced in Saturday's 6-0 win over Team Czech Republic.

Not bad for a guy that's played just a handful of pre-tournament minutes since injuring his knee last November. Canada was clearly the dominant side in this game, but Price still had to come up with a few key saves during this contest. It's unclear how coach Mike Babcock will divide the starts for his goalies, but unless he falters, expect price to be Canada's go-to guy.

Carey Price will be between the pipes for Canada's game against the Czech Republic on Saturday night.

Price missed most of last season with a knee injury and although he's looked shaky at times in pre-tournament action, Team Canada trusts him to start their opener. Corey Crawford will serve as Price's backup, while Braden Holtby is a healthy scratch.

The World Cup exhibition games have seemed to help Carey Price in his road to return from a knee injury.

Price hadn't played since November before getting the opportunity to participate in two warmup contests for Team Canada. "I had kind of forgotten how long a game day was, going through the whole routine of morning skate, warmup, then the game," Price said Thursday. "You kind of forget how much mental preparation goes into it. … I'd like to get back to my routine of going through all the stages of game day. It was nice to go through that a couple of times. By the end of [Wednesday] it was feeling pretty comfortable." Price should get another start on Saturday against the Czech Republic as the World Cup officially gets underway.

Carey Price will start in Canada's exhibition game against Russia on Wednesday.

Price made his first start since November on Sept. 9 when he turned aside 21 of 24 shots in a 4-2 loss to Team USA. This is another opportunity for him to shake off the rust ahead of the World Cup and, for that matter, the Canadiens' campaign.
Sep 13 - 4:23 PM

Carey Price was glad to get his first game since last November out of the way.

He started Canada's pre-tournament opener against Team USA on Friday night after missing most of the 2015-16 season because of a knee injury. "It was a little bit of an adventure at times, but I kind of expected that," said Price. "It's not easy to be out for that long and just pick it up right away. I knew there was going to be some work to do, but I'm glad to get that one over with. I knew I was ready. I just don’t think my game was quite ready. I've got some more work to do. I've got a long time before my next start, hopefully." If he stays healthy, Price should be a top three fantasy option at his position.
Sep 10 - 5:39 PM

Carey Price made 21 stops on 24 shots in a 4-2 loss to the United States in a pre-tournament match for the World Cup of Hockey.

Friday night's start was his first game action since Nov. 25 of last season. Price looked a bit rusty at times, but he handled the puck well and made some solid saves in the match.
Sep 9 - 10:05 PM

Carey Price will start Canada's first pretournament game on Friday against Team USA.

It will be his first start since Nov. 25 after he missed the last 59 games of the regular season due to a knee injury.
Sep 7 - 12:59 PM

Carey Price would like to play a full game during Canada's pre-tournament schedule for the World Cup of Hockey.

He feels ready to play after missing most of the 2015-16 season due to a knee injury. Price said he skated five days a week in August in preparation for the World Cup. Bench boss Mike Babcock and the coaching staff haven't worked out a goalie rotation yet, but it should be finalized by Wednesday.
Sep 5 - 3:07 PM

After suffering a knee injury last season, Carey Price says he feels "like my old self on the ice."

"I feel like my old self on the ice," Price told NHL.com. The 29-year-old suffered an MCL injury in late November and missed the rest of the season. Even though the injury is behind him, Price admits that a lighter regular season workload may be the key to keeping himself fresh. "As you get older -- I'm not old, but 29 is relative in goalie years -- you like to see your number of games taper down a little bit so you are fresher for playoffs," Price said. "By the time playoffs start you want to be as fresh as possible and I think even five fewer games would help. As you get older too, your amount of time spent in practice should taper off as well a little bit." Even if his workload decreases, Price should still be one of the top fantasy goalies in 2016-17.
