Great news about Carey Price: a possible return to play date has been revealed

One of the current issues for the Montreal Canadiens, since the beginning of the season, is the state of health of goalie Carey Price.

Maybe that could change soon.

Yesterday he received shots, for the very first time in a very long time and today it continued!

«Progress again on the side of Carey Price (today) who spent about 45 minutes on the ice in Brossard." - Luc Gélinas

Since Price's knee surgery on July 23, we've had our share of twists and turns, but right now we're living through the most encouraging, positive and promising times.

In the last few minutes, Renaud Lavoie, of TVA Sports, had new information to tell us:

"Carey's not doing well just a little...He's doing great! Today he received shots in practice and he was on the ice for 45 minutes. We are no longer talking about the small 10-15 minute sessions of a few weeks ago! All of which means that unless the swelling comes back, Carey Price will be playing hockey this year." - Renaud Lavoie

It would be huge. Lavoie continues:

«He has reached another level in his rehabilitation. Previously, his knee was far too swollen for him to go there. The goal, for Carey Price, is to return to the game somewhere in April. We still have time, but Carey really wants to play hockey in April."

Wow, so positive! This is the first time in a very long time that a possible return to play date has been brought forward.
