It remains unknown whether Price will play any games before the end of the Canadiens’ season on April 29, or even whether he will ever play again. During his Jan. 31 press conference (his only statement to the press this season), Price revealed that the state of his knee could prove to be career-ending. He said at the time that he would know more about his future, this season and beyond, in the first two weeks of February, but there has been no update since then.

Price has been training on and off the ice since his return to the team in the second week of November, following a month in the NHL players assistance program. He was in the program for a month for mental health issues related to substance use.

His knee rehabilitation follows surgery for a torn meniscus in July.
