Tri-City Herald: Price pays visit to Ams for weeklong workout

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

Eric Comrie was out sick Monday, but the Tri-City Americans had a backup goaltender waiting in the wings to man the net in practice.

Former Americans goalie Carey Price, now the starter for the Montreal Canadiens, strapped on the pads and helped out with the morning and afternoon practice sessions at Toyota Center.

“It’s been six years since I’ve been on the ice here in my equipment,” said Price, who plans to practice all week with the team. “It did feel pretty weird at first, but it felt good to be out there. I’ve been in Montreal for most of the lockout playing 3-on-3. I probably feel like Olie (Kolzig) did when he skated with us (during the 2004-05 lockout). It’s weird being on the other side of the coin.”

The Americans players had no idea Price was coming to town. General manager Bob Tory wanted to keep it a surprise.
