Carey Price

The Montreal Canadiens told media members on Friday night that goaltender Carey Price is "progressing well" and feeling better. 

Price will continue to work off the ice, but is not slated to hit the ice for the time being. 

Last month, Price talked to the media for the first time this season, saying he still hopes to play in 2021-22. The 34-year-old has had, as he even put it, a "long year", grappling not only with the defeat of coming so close to hockey's ultimate prize, but also with his own demons, as Price voluntarily entered himself the NHL's player assistance program in September for substance abuse issues.

The Canadiens currently sit 31st in the NHL, one point over the Arizona Coyotes.
