Habs reward Price with 6-year dealJul 2, 2012 - 10:01 PM Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens locked up starting goaltender Carey Price on Monday, signing the restricted free agent to a six- year contract.
Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.
The 24-year-old backstop finished last season 26-28-11 with a 2.43 goals- against average, .916 save percentage and four shutouts in 65 games for the Canadiens, who missed out on the postseason for the first time since 2007.
Since breaking into the NHL during the 2007-08 campaign, the British Columbia native has compiled a 124-104-35 mark, 2.56 GAA and 16 shutouts over 271 appearances, all for the Habs.
In addition, Price carries an 8-15 postseason record with three whitewashes and a 2.84 GAA.
