Canadiens put goalie Carey Price on injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 26

Montreal goaltender Carey Price has been placed on the Canadiens' injured reserve retroactive to Feb. 26.

Price suffered a lower-body injury at the Sochi Olympics, where he had a 24-save shutout in Team Canada's 3-0 gold-medal victory over Sweden.

A spokesman for the Canadiens told The Canadian Press that the move does not reflect a change in the status of Price's injury, which is still day to day. The move was made to free up a roster spot.

Price can be returned to Montreal's roster as early as Tuesday and he could play against the Ducks in Anaheim on Wednesday if he's ready to return.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
