Price Reportedly Suffers Setback in Knee Rehab

Montreal Canadiens netminder Carey Price will reportedly need to re-start his rehab from off-season knee surgery after suffering a setback.

Carey Price's lengthy road to recovery from off-season knee surgery has reportedly just gotten longer.

According to Sportsnet's Eric Engels, Price met with the doctor who performed the procedure in recent weeks and came to the conclusion that his best course of action would be to re-start his rehab program. 

The decision came after the NHL's extended winter break and COVID-19 layoff prevented Price from continuing to receive treatment on his knee for a period of weeks, therein causing a setback in his recovery that has now forced him to start from square one. 

It's yet another hurdle placed in front of Price over the past calendar year. 

Prior to the beginning of the season, Price made the courageous decision to enter the NHL's player assistance program for what he later revealed to be substance abuse issues. That, coupled with offseason surgery to repair a significant knee injury and the subsequent recovery that has now taken a turn for the worse, has likely made Price's past 12 months less-than-pleasant. 

Hopefully, this second round of rehabilitation can follow its designated path and return Price back to the ice, where he belongs.
