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.
Feb 3 - 4:50 PM

There is no further word on the status of Carey Price.

Everything has been really quiet the last week on any further progress Price has been making. Price had increased the length of his skates alongside Montreal trainers since January 13th but he is still on the ice without any equipment. The next step in Price's recovery will be him donning the pads for his workouts. Without any further information it is hard to forecast that Price will return to action soon after the All-Star break as has been speculated by some.
Jan 30 - 11:35 AM

If the Canadiens are not in the playoff hunt in three-four weeks, they may choose to shut Carey Price down for the season.

That is a bit of a speculation at this point, but it remains a possibility as the Habs would not risk bringing their MVP back if there was nothing on the line. This is not the type of news Price owners want to think about.
Jan 23 - 10:25 AM

Carey Price (lower body) will miss at least another three-to-four weeks.

In other words, those hoping that Price will swoop in to save the Canadiens are out of luck. Another month or so on the sidelines means that Price won't be returning until just before the trade deadline in a best case scenario. Given that Price's recovery thus far has followed anything but an ideal path, it wouldn't be shocking to see him end up missing more than the new minimum.

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

Price engaged in an intense skate, but he wasn't wearing his goalie equipment. It's a potential sign of progress, but also an indication that he's not close to returning. Montreal could certainly use all the help it can get after going 4-16-1 in its last 21 games, but it looks like the Canadiens will need to rebound without Price if they are to stay in a position where he can salvage their season upon his return.
Jan 21 - 11:29 AM

Carey Price (lower body) skated on his own Tuesday.

He has been skating regularly without his equipment, but that may change soon. "I guess he's getting closer and closer to start [practicing] with his gear," coach Michel Therrien said. "I've heard a lot of good things about his recovery so we're excited about that."
Jan 19 - 6:17 PM

Carey Price (lower body) skated for a second straight day on Tuesday.

He didn't wear equipment during his 45-minute session with athletic therapist Graham Rynbend. Price isn't expected to play before the All-Star break and Montreal is expected to be very cautious with their star goaltender's return when NHL action resumes.
Jan 13 - 10:19 AM

The Montreal Canadiens don't expect Carey Price (lower body) to return before the All-Star Game.

Price hasn't played since Nov. 25 and lower-body problems have limited him to 12 games overall. It's certainly unfortunate as he could have been a serious contender to repeat as the Vezina Trophy winner if he had a healthy season. When he has played in 2015-16, he's posted a 2.06 GAA and .934 save percentage.
Jan 8 - 1:01 PM

Carey Price (lower body) is making progress, but he hasn't resumed skating yet.

"Carey Price's rehab is going well but he is not ready to get back on the ice just yet," coach Michel Therrien said. Price has hit the five-week mark with his lower-body injury after being given a six-week timetable. Montreal has struggled since Price went down for the second time, while posting a 5-11-1 record.
Jan 4 - 3:02 PM

Carey Price has been named the winner of the 2015 Lou Marsh Memorial Trophy.

The award goes annually to the top Canadian athlete. Price received plenty of praise and hardware for his efforts during the 2014-15 season, as he captured the Hart Trophy (MVP), the Vezina Trophy (Best Goaltender) and the Ted Lindsay Award (Best Player as voted on by the NHLPA). He is the first goaltender to ever win the Lou Marsh Memorial Trophy.

Carey Price will be sidelined for at least six weeks due to a lower-body injury, according to the Canadiens.

The good news is that he won't require surgery. Price is believed to be dealing with a knee injury, which he aggravated in his third game back following a nine-game absence. He was originally injured on Oct. 29 in Edmonton.

According to a report, Carey Price will have an arthroscopic procedure on his right knee Monday.

It will determine how serious his injury is and hopefully provide a timetable for when he will be available to return. If any torn ligaments are discovered then Price may require surgery.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 10:28:00 AM

Carey Price will have more tests early this week on what is thought to be a knee injury, according to Sportsnet.

Reports earlier in the day suggested Price would miss a month, however the Canadiens called those erroneous. The team will offer a timetable after the additional tests (either Monday or Tuesday) are taken. Price is 10-2-0 with a 2.06 GAA and .934 SV%.

RDS is reporting that Carey Price will be out of action for a month with a knee injury.

Wow! This is not a shock but a big loss to the Canadiens and fantasy owners of Price as he has been the best goalie in hockey over the last couple of seasons. Price re-injured an earlier injury which forced him to miss nine games, on Wednesday. He is 8-2-2 with a 2.06 GAA and a .934 save percentage. Right now Mike Condon and Dustin Tokarski will take over the net but there is a chance the Habs will trade for a veteran netminder to tide them over.
