Montreal Canadiens star netminder Carey Price spoke with reporters Tuesday morning to update the status of his lower-body injury and what he said won’t make Habs fans happy.
Price said that while he expects to “be back soon” his ailment is taking longer to heal than he had originally expected. The 30-year-old hasn’t played or practised since a 6-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 2. Price explained Tuesday that he suffered the injury during the warm-up prior to that game, although he did not go into specifics on what the exact injury is.
The injury came in warmup before the game in Minnesota, went to bed that night thinking it wasn’t too serious, then woke up the next morning and realized there was an issue #Habs

Prior to getting hurt, Price had struggled mightily this season with a 3-7-1 record, 3.77 goals-against average and .877 save percentage.
