General manager Marc Bergevin announced that the surgery was done at the Hospital for Special Surgery by Dr. Robert Marx after consulting with his colleague Dr. Bryan Kelly concerning Price’s hip and knee injuries. The hip injury will not require surgery.

Price is expected to be ready to play when the 2021-22 NHL regular season begins on Oct. 13 with the Canadiens playing the Maple Leafs in Toronto.

Price had an inconsistent regular season this year, posting a 12-7-5 record with a 2.64 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage. He was much better in the playoffs, posting a 13-9 record with a 2.28 goals-against average and a .924 save percentage as the Canadiens advanced to the Stanley Cup final before losing to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
