Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is restarting his rehab from offseason knee surgery and remains out indefinitely, vice president of hockey communications Chantal Machabee said Monday.

The restart follows recent COVID-19 restrictions and consultation with Price's doctor, Machabee said. She added that the 34-year-old is "slow to progress."

Price hasn't suited up in a game this season. He missed time at the beginning of the campaign after voluntarily entering the NHL's player assistance program in October. He exited the program after one month and has since been rehabbing.

The Canadiens have been ravaged by injuries all season and sit last in the NHL with a 7-24-5 record. Jake Allen has handled the lion's share of goaltending duties in Price's absence, posting a .901 save percentage and 3.15 goals against average in 2021-22.
