Canadiens re-sign G Price to 2-year contract @NHL

MONTREAL (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens have re-signed restricted free-agent goalie Carey Price to a two-year contract.

The 22-year-old goaltender signed the new contract on Thursday, ending two months of negotiations with the Canadiens.

Price has spent his entire career in Montreal after being selected fifth overall in the 2005 NHL draft. He'll start the upcoming season as the team's No. 1 goalie. He split the duties last season with Jaroslav Halak, who has since been dealt to the St. Louis Blues.

Price was 13-20-5 in 41 games. Halak took over the starting job late in the season and helped the Canadiens reach the Eastern Conference finals.
