But as you know, that’s all behind us now. The Canadiens know that their goalie will no longer be able to play, and that his playing career is now over.
In fact, he’s just a few weeks away from heading back West with his family.
Mourning the loss of one’s career is not always easy. That said, right now, the Habs’ #31 seems at peace with it all. That’s according to Stéphane Waite, who chatted with the player this week.
“Carey Price is blossoming!

The two chatted for several hours, but field hockey didn’t come up often in the discussion. Why didn’t it?

Carey currently feels good, because he can be functional in everyday life. – Stéphane Waite
Let’s not forget that Price had said he didn’t want to mortgage his future for field hockey. He wanted to be able to play with his children and simply live a normal life, which seems to be the case at the moment.
