Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will return from a lower-body injury and start Saturday afternoon against the Ottawa Senators.

Price last played April 5 and Jake Allen made six-straight starts in that span, posting a 2-4-0 record.

Price has a 12-6-5 record with a .903 save percentage this season.

In addition to Price's return, head coach Dominique Ducharme announced prospect Cole Caufield will travel with the Canadiens on their upcoming five-game road trip. However, Ducharme wouldn't confirm if Caufield will make his NHL debut in that time.

The Canadiens recalled Caufield from the AHL on Friday and assigned him to the taxi squad. This season's Hobey Baker Award winner had three goals and four points in two AHL games.
