Wiki

Carey Price (born August 16, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). Price was the Canadiens first round selection (fifth overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Prior to turning pro, Price played for the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League (WHL).

Price was drafted in the first round, 5th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens. He spent his major junior hockey career playing for the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League (WHL) beginning in 2002–03. Price established himself as a top prospect during his major junior career particularly in his draft year in 2004–05 with an 8-shutout, 2.34 goals against average (GAA) and .920 save percentage season with the Americans. In his last year in the WHL, he was awarded the Del Wilson Trophy as the WHL goaltender of the year, as well as the CHL Goaltender of the Year, in addition to being named to the WHL First All-Star Team.

Upon completing his award-winning season in the WHL, Price immediately began his professional career with the Hamilton Bulldogs in the American Hockey League (AHL), having signed with the Canadiens in 2007 to a three-year, entry-level contract worth $850,000 USD. He joined the Bulldogs for the last three games of the regular season and the 2007 Calder Cup playoffs, recording his first professional game and win on April 13, 2007 against the Grand Rapids Griffins. He was named the first star of the game upon stopping 27 of 28 shots. Price went on to lead the Bulldogs with a 15–6 playoff record to a 2007 Calder Cup championship, with an impressive 2.06 GAA and .936 save percentage. In his first game of the Calder Cup finals, he stopped all 46 shots to post a shutout. He subsequently won the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as the Calder Cup playoffs MVP at 19-years-old, making him the youngest player ever to receive the award.
