BRASSARD, Que. – Montreal Canadiens will have goalkeeper Carrie Price back in the starter network for their game against Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the 31-year-old said the injury sustained seven weeks ago made him enough to force him to the sidelines for the last three matches in Montreal.
The price, which in the first year of the eight-year agreement worth 84 million dollars, said the rest is beneficial.
"I feel good," he added. "Obviously it's nice to get some time and to settle things and start to feel normal."
The game on Thursday will be the first of the season, after he made 26 beats in a 4-3 overtime victory for Canadiens over the Golden Knights of Vegas on Dec. 22. This was his eighth victory in his December 11th, bringing his record to 15-10-4 in the season.
The game on Thursday will be the second at the price against the Canucks this year. He made 38 beats in a 3-2 win on Nov. 17.
Canadian striker Joel Army also needs to return to Vancouver.
An army, which has three goals and four assists in 15 games, missed 25 matches with injuries less severe. To make room for him on an active list, Canadiens put Angloo's wing on the injured reserve list, retroactively on December 31.
Shaw, who played only 2:09 in a 3-2 overtime win over Canadiens over the Dallas Stars on New Year's Eve, has a neck injury, according to Canadian coach Claude Julien.
"[Shaw] there was an injury to the neck that started giving him headaches and because of him [concussion] history, trainers wanted to be proactive and cautious and get it out of the game and see our doctors, "said Julien." Right now is a neck injury that gives headaches, doctors can not confirm a concussion. But it is treated in a way that we need to get rid of those headaches, and that's what we will do. So, we are somehow taking over the undermining protocol for this because of its history. "
Shaw, who has 11 goals and 24 points in 36 games this season, has suffered three tremors in the past 18 months.
