Carey Price, who returned to action last night in Atlanta, will see double duty on NHL All-Star weekend. Price, who will start for the Eastern Conference team in Sunday’s game, has elected to skip the skills competition Saturday but he will play in the Young Stars game that evening.
Price stopped nine of 10 shots in relief of Jaroslav Halak last night. it was his first appearance since he sprained his ankle and the only shot which beat him was a wide attempt by Zach Bogosian which caromed off defenceman Josh Gorges’ skate.
Tonight, Price will make his first since the injury when he faces the Devils in New Jersey.
