Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price is a Hall of Fame player. There, let’s just get that out of the way right now. I know by looking at this title, that you already have your counter-argument ready about how I’m some 21-year-old kid who doesn’t know squat about hockey and is invoking yet also insulting the great name of Carey Price, and quite frankly, I’m used to it (how about that Logan Mailloux, eh?)
Montreal Canadiens fans breathed a collective sigh of relief when Carey Price finally took to the ice this season, even if it was for just a few games. The all-world netminder missed nearly all of the 2021-22 campaign with a knee injury and time spent in the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program, but he returned to play in five games at the end of the season. His battle through adversity was enough to win him the 2022 Masterton Trophy, but with rumors swirling about how healthy Price was and whether he could return at all next season, it was a little bittersweet.

General manager Kent Hughes clarified that it was not an operation that Price underwent, though the specific details are unknown. The goalie was limited to five games in 2021-22 due to a long recovery from knee surgery last offseason, and it appears health will continue to be a concern for him heading into next year.
