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.

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.
