Carey Price hasn't donned his pads for an NHL game since the end of the 2021-22 season. Everyone's convinced his career is over, but he's still holding out hope.

The good news is that Price is very comfortable with his daily activities. According to him, he'll be able to take part in training camp, but there's one major caveat.
"I feel like I could go to this Habs training camp, make the team and get back in the game, I feel good, but then I play in a softball tournament and my knee swells up for 2 weeks and I'm like 'OK, a full NHL season, that's not going to do it.'"

Carey Price is also asked if he's at peace with the fact that his playing days are all but officially over:

"Well, most likely - barring a miracle. I'm still under contract and I'm still hoping to play in the NHL again. I'm still hopeful, but the odds are getting slimmer by the month." "

I'm sorry, does that mean that Carey's hope is still alive and that he's continuing to train with a view to perhaps returning to the game? We agree it would be a miracle, but what a story it would be!
So, if we understand correctly, Carey would be able to play one game, but not a full season. Of course, if his knee is going to be swollen for two weeks after a game, he might as well make room for someone else. But it's still much better news than this time last year.
Let's not forget that Carey was questioning his ability to go up and down stairs a year ago. Personally, I don't think he'll ever be back in the game, but I'm very happy that his future with his children isn't as mortgaged as we might have thought.
