One-on-One: Price shuts out negative thoughts

Carey Price is considered to be the Canadiens’ goaltender of the future, and he has shown flashes of brilliance this season. But the 20-year-old has also shown that he is a young goaltender who still has some work to do.

That’s something the 6-foot-3, 226-pound Vancouver native is keenly aware of, especially after a stint with the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs that allowed him to regain some of the form he had lost after a strong start as an NHL rookie.

Drafted by the Canadiens in the first round (fifth overall) at the 2005 NHL entry draft, Price has enjoyed a great deal of success in a short period of time. Heading into last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, he had a 10-8-3 record with the Canadiens, along with a 2.83 goals-against average and .908 save percentage.


In this week’s One-on-One feature,
The Gazette’s Kevin Mio sits down with Price to discuss his quick rise to the NHL and how he has been able to make the necessary adjustments
quickly.
