Pucks were ringing off the boards Wednesday morning at Toyota Arena. They don’t have the same musical tone as wedding bells, but by week’s end, Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price will have heard them both.
It’s a busy week for Price, who will marry Kennewick native Angela Webber on Saturday, then leave Sunday for the Canada’s National Men’s Team orientation camp in Calgary. The camp will be used to evaluate players for the upcoming Sochi Olympic games.
“It hasn’t been too bad,” Price said. “Fortunately for me, Angela has been doing a lot of the work. She’s had a lot of help with the wedding so it hasn’t been too bad on me. I can focus on training.
“It’s a really busy week. Fortunately for me, I have a really good future family-in-laws.”
Price, who turned 26 last week, was sharing time in goal with Tri-City Americans goalie Troy Trombley on Wednesday, stopping everything that came his way.

It’s August which means the pool of news in the NHL is fairly shallow. While some would say this gives us a chance to focus on other sports, I say that each passing day is simply one day closer to the start of hockey season. This makes it somewhat refreshing when someone gives us a blog-worthy story to fill up our pool and for us to dive on in without fear of injury or death.
