Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has concussion: report citing team doctor

The Canadian Press
By:

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens say goaltender Carey Price has headaches but they are not confirming a report he has a concussion.

Radio-Canada Sports says team doctor David Mulder told the network Price has a concussion and may miss the final three games of the season.

A team spokesman says more should be known about Price's condition on Tuesday.

Price, who is scheduled to become a restricted free agent on July 1, did not take part in the team's practice Monday.

He played in last Friday's loss to the New York Rangers before making way for Petar Budaj the following night.

On the plus side for the Canadiens, Scott Gomez, Mathieu Darche and Travis Moen participated in Monday's practice after all being out injured for more than three weeks.

It wasn't immediately clear whether any of them will be ready for Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Habs, who have been eliminated from playoff contention, close out the season with games Thursday in Carolina and Saturday at home against Toronto.
