Carey Price resumed skating Thursday and is in the Montreal Canadiens gym and medical clinic almost every day, working a surgically repaired knee back into shape for what will be the goalie's 15th NHL season. It's a return to business after a busy, short offseason, the Canadiens having gone to the 2021 Stanley Cup Final, losing the best-of-7 series in five games to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Arthroscopic surgery July 22 in New York cleaned up Price's torn meniscus, the shock-absorbing cartilage in the knee. The Canadiens said at the time his full recovery would take 10-12 weeks; but Price said he's encouraged by his rehabilitation.
