A photo of Carey Price sets the web on fire

A true icon of the last two decades within the Montreal Canadiens hockey club, goaltender Carey Price remains the favorite player of a generation of fans. During the last game played at the Bell Centre, number 31 took the opportunity to leave his mark.

Back in his native British Columbia, Price crossed the country for this final game of the Canadiens' 2023-2024 season.

It's a gesture that reflects the class of the team's first overall pick in 2005.

The Price family decided to spend a brief stay in the metropolis. His wife, Angela Price, has immortalized many moments in recent days on her Instagram account.

Away from the action on the ice due to his knee problems, Carey Price has remained low-key in his appearances. It's known that he doesn't like being the center of attention or being in the spotlight.

Nevertheless, Carey Price still wanted to capture the moment for a fan. The one who helped the Canadiens reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2021 stopped to take a photo with a fan sporting his #68 Canadiens jersey.

At 36 years old, it can be said that the netminder has left his mark on the Montreal Canadiens organization. He is still one of the crowd favorites, even though he hasn't played for over two and a half years.

Aged 36, the fifth overall pick in the 2005 NHL Draft has tended goal in 712 career NHL games with the Habs. He has held a record of 361-261-79, along with a goals-against average of 2.51 and a save percentage of .917.

All are unanimous... He was one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of the Habs. It would hardly be surprising to see his jersey retired one day.
