According to a report from Radio-Canada Sports (by way of the Globe and Mail), Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has suffered a concussion that may end his season.

Radio-Canada says it was informed of Price’s injury by Montreal team doctor David Mulder.

Price, 24, has been out of the Montreal lineup since allowing four goals on 29 shots in Friday’s loss to the Rangers. He played the entire game but was held out of Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Washington (Peter Budaj was in goal for the Canadiens) and didn’t participate in Monday’s practice.

Today, Montreal’s official Twitter feed said Price was “suffering from headaches,” and that his status “is being re-evaluated daily.”

It’s unclear when Price may have suffered the concussion, though a recent CBC report claims the injury occurred at practice.

Price is 26-28-11 this year with a .916 save percentage and 2.43 GAA. He was Montreal’s lone representative at the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa.
