MONTREAL - Goaltender Carey Price is the Molson Cup recipient for the month of January. He earns the honor for a third consecutive month.
Price was selected first star of the game twice (on January 11 at Ottawa and January 16 at Philadelphia) as well as third star once (on January 13 versus Calgary). He finished ahead of teammates Nick Suzuki and Ilya Kovalchuk.
Carey Price played 10 games in January, earning the team's five wins in that span. He registered a 2.09 goals-against average along with a .934 save percentage for the month. He added a shutout on January 13 against the Flames.
Price is currently tied for fourth among NHL goaltenders in wins and is leading all goalies in minutes played (602:51). The Anahim Lake, BC native also won five of his last six starts.
The 32-year-old goaltender will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony prior to tomorrow's game against the Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre.
