Carey Price, Canadian goalkeeper, has no plans to retire ‘at the moment’


Montreal Canada’s star goalkeeper Price carefully still hopes he can return to the ice, but said his priority is to be pain-free on a daily basis.

The 35-year-old spoke to reporters Monday at the club’s training facility on the city’s south coast which comes as he continues to deal with a lingering knee injury.

“We’re going to have to take it one step at a time,” Price said. “I have no plans to retire at the moment.”

The Vezina and Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy winner played just five games last season after an incredible playoff where he led the Habs team to the 2021 playoff final.

Meanwhile, Price is spending time with his family and his goal is “just to get healthy”. He has focused on rehabilitation for his knee, but it has not been successful so far.

“That’s the really frustrating part,” Price said, adding that he’s continuing to try and work out the problem. “I’m still holding out hope.”

Before this season began, general manager Kent Hughes said in September that Price would be placed on the long-term injury reserve.
