HftL Does the All-Stars (Eastern Conference): CAREY PRICE of the Montreal Canadiens

Carey Price is one of four Habs to start in the 2009 NHL All-Star game (as the goalie); however, he recently injured his ankle and the Canadiens coach reported that he doesn't want his star goalie to participate unless his ankle is healed.

He first laced-up a pair of skates at the age of 3. Hockey is in the family as his father (also a goalie) was drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1978 and his cousin, Shane Doan, is the captain of the Phoenix Coyotes.

What's Hot - Price is 6'3 and 219 pounds with dark hair and eyes (tall, dark, and handsome); he made the cover of the most recent issue of ESPN the Magazine being dubbed "The Loneliest Man in Sports."

What's Hockey - he was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round
in the 2005 entry draft (5th overall). Played on the WHL West First All-Star Team (2007), Canadian Major Junior Goaltender of the Year (2007), received the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as the AHL's Playoff MVP (2007). He was named NHL's rookie of the month in April 2008 with a 7-3-0 record, 2.67 GAA, .924 save percentage, and a shutout as well as being named to the 2007-2008 NHL's All-Rookie team; also named Canadiens Player of the Month in November 2008 with a record of 6-3-0, and a shut out.
