Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is taking a voluntary leave from the group to get in the NHL/NHLPA gamer support program. The statement comes one day after Habs coach Dominique Ducharme, on Wednesday, stated that Price was “not doing well right now” and would likely not play in the Oct. 13 season opener, according to ESPN.

In an Instagram post on Thursday early morning, Carey’s partner Angela Price highlighted the value of her partner’s psychological health. 

Here’s what she composed:

“Part of the privilege of being in the position our family is in, is that we also get a public platform to show how there is and can be a path to light for anyone who is struggling. No matter what is on the line, we hope we can communicate the importance of putting your mental health first; not just by saying it, but by showing up and doing the worse to get better.

The post continued, stating, “Carey’s showing up for himself and our family and making the absolute best decision possible for us. I will continue to show up for him and our kids and seek out the support I may need on any given day.”

Price surgical treatment this previous offseason to fix a torn meniscus. According to ESPN, the goalie’s choices captured Canadiens basic supervisor Marc Bergevin “off guard.”

The NHL and NHLPA just revealed his choice to take a leave. They did not state why and noted they will not make any more discuss the matter.
