Carey Price Releases Statement

Carey Price

Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens has released a statement via his Instagram addressing his absence from the team at the beginning of this season. In his statement, Price says that he took the time to check himself into a “residential treatment facility for substance abuse.” This is the first statement from Price since deciding to take advantage of the Player Assistance program offered by the NHLPA right before the season started.

There has been a lot of speculation about why Price decided to leave the team. There were even reporters demanding additional answers from Price as to his departure when the team was struggling after their historic run to the Cup last year. That demand is ridiculous and outside the realm of Price’s responsibility. We will say this as an organization here at Inside The Rink: we are proud of you, Carey, and we wish you the best in your journey. Your privacy and your health are of the utmost importance, and we reporters don’t matter. You can see Price’s complete statement in the Tweet below.
