Montreal G Carey Price's recovery finally takes a positive turn

BY foxsports • January 13, 2016

The NHL might want to watch out; Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is finally back on the ice.

Price, the reigning Vezina and Hart Trophy winner, has skated for three consecutive days, albeit without any of his goalie gear. Available videos on Twitter show Price seemingly testing his lower body. 

The goaltender has been out since late November with a lower-body injury. He first suffered the injury in late October and missed the first few weeks of November. When he attempted to return at the end of November, Price re-aggravated the injury. 

Once Price was ruled out yet again, the Canadiens initially said the goaltender would be out for six weeks, but they altered that timeline earlier this month. Price is now expected to return after the All-Star Break.

Although Price's return clearly is not imminent, the fact that he is finally skating again should be a comfort to Canadiens fans. The team struggled in his absence and is 6-13-1 without him.
