today 08:40 | Canadian hockey goaltender Carey Price will probably miss the entire next NHL season. The reason is the knee injury of the long-time support of the Montreal Canadiens, which is not developing in a good direction. According to general manager “Habs” Kent Hughes, it is unlikely that Price could return to competitive action without undergoing surgery. Even that, together with a long convalescence, may not be enough. “The estimates are pessimistic,” Hughes noted. Thirty-five-year-old Price will probably spend the entire year on the long-term injured list. That allowed the Canadiens general manager to free up some salary cap space to acquire center Sean Monahan from Calgary, the AP reported. In 2021, Price led Montreal to the finals of the playoffs with his brilliant performances, in which the Canadiens fell short of Tampa Bay. However, several serious problems marked his career in the following months. He underwent knee surgery and also completed an NHL addiction treatment assistance program. Price admitted that the reason was the use of addictive substances. The experienced goalkeeper still has a contract valid for four years, which guarantees him 10.5 million. dollars per season.
