Carey Price told reporters on Tuesday that he's "making progress" toward returning from a lower-body injury.
He was on the ice for just 15 minutes during an optional workout. Price also said that the ailment originally appeared about three weeks before he left for Russia to play in the Olympics and he aggravated it during Team Canada's second practice. "It was manageable," said Price, who played through what is believed to be groin injury. "When I came back to Montreal, I didn't feel good and it's important that we take care of this and that I get back to being 100 percent." He may skate on his own Wednesday, but he's listed as day-to-day.

Carey Price didn't participate in Monday's morning skate and he won't return in Los Angeles.
"Carey is still day-to-day," coach Michel Therrien said. "As soon as the medical staff feels he's ready to start practicing, he's going to go on the ice, but obviously he was not today. He's just doing treatment now."

Carey Price is "doing better," and will join the Habs on their four-game Western road swing, but will not play on Saturday.
Price left Wednesday's practice after facing just one shot, and was ruled out for the Habs' game on Saturday against Toronto. Travelling with the team out west next week is a good sign, but Coach Michel Therrian said the goaltender will not play until he's feeling 100 per cent.

Carey Price aggravated a lower-body injury during the 2014 Winter Games.
Price will miss at least two contests as a result. Price had a 0.59 GAA and .972 save percentage while representing Canada in the Olympics. Hopefully this setback doesn't kill whatever momentum he might have gained from his superb showing in Sochi.

Carey Price was back at Montreal's practice facility on Monday and he got a chance to show off his Olympic gold medal.
"It was a really cool life experience and I was really honored and grateful for the opportunity to take part in that," he said. "There was a complete effort from everybody. No matter the position guys were put in, guys contributed in some way. That was probably the most special feeling - everybody out on that ice when our anthem was played had a part in it in some way. ... It was really special feeling to hear your anthem and know that you truly deserved it." Price enjoyed a shutout streak of 164:19 to end the tournament. He posted a .972 save percentage and a 0.59 goals-against average in five appearances. Price won't get close to the same defensive support in Montreal that he received with Team Canada, but his confidence is high right now which should make him a solid start coming out of the Winter Olympics.

Carey Price was named the top goaltender at the Olympics.
Price was spectacular in goal for Canada, giving up only three goals in five games as the Canadians shut down their opposition at every opportunity. Price, however, was not named to the media all-star team as it consisted of Henrik Lundqvist in net, Drew Doughty and Erik Karlsson on the blueline and Phil Kessel, Teemu Selanne and Mikael Granlund up front.

Carey Price stopped all 24 shots as Canada defeated Sweden 3-0 to win the Gold Medal at the Olympics.
Price was sensational during the playdowns at the Olympics as he gave up only one goal in three games, stopping 70 shots. He was strong in the first but had little to do in the third as Canada was all over Sweden, giving up only four shots on goal. Price will now return to the Montreal Canadiens where he hopes to lead them to the Stanley Cup with his outstanding play.

Carey Price saved all 31 American shots he faced in a 1-0 victory in the Olympic semifinals.
The United States offense has been superb throughout the tournament and while Price got plenty of help from the team in front of him, there's no question that he was a critical factor in Canada's victory. He now has a 0.74 GAA and .963 save percentage in four Olympic games and is one victory away from securing his spot in Canadian hockey history.
