According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, Price’s lower-body injury issues began Oct. 29 in Edmonton prior to a game against the Oilers when Price stepped on a puck during warm-ups. Price allowed four goals in a loss that night and didn’t suit up again until Nov. 20.
After winning back-to-back games against the New York Islanders, Price, who met with doctors Saturday left Wednesday’s game against the Rangers after the second period and the team subsequently placed him on the injured list.
The reigning Hart and Vezina winner is 10-2-0 this season with a .934 save percentage, 2.06 goals-against average and two shutouts. Rookie Mike Condon has filled in for Price in his absence.
