The Montreal Canadiens announced Wednesday that last season's Hart and Vezina trophies winner, as well as defenseman P.K. Subban, have been shut down with two games remaining in their season. The team also revealed for the first time details about the injury that has kept Price out most of the season. Price sustained a medial collateral ligament injury (MCL sprain) to his right knee on Nov. 25th , 2015 in a game against the NY Rangers. Injuries of this nature can be extremely difficult for goaltenders due to high demand placed on this anatomical structure by modern goaltending techniques. He is expected to make a full recovery over the offseason, and is till expected to start for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey in September. Without Price in their lineup, the Habs crashed and burned this season, missing the playoffs for the first time in four years. Meanwhile, Subban was taken off the ice on a stretcher March 10 after being hit in the head by a teammate during a scary crash in the corner. The team said he suffered a minor neck injury.
