from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
The “2336” readout on the watch following Monday’s game wasn’t the time of night, but rather his estimated calorie expenditure of the previous 5½ hours.
“I wear it in practice and I’ve been curious. I never knew what (calories) I burned during a game,” Price said. “It will give me a good idea what I should be eating and how many calories I should be consuming.”
Plenty, as it turns out. And guilt-free, no doubt.
Strapping the monitor on his chest when he arrives at the arena, Price figures by the data recorded that he burns about 300 calories over two hours, then another 2,000 during the warmup and game.
The receiver has proven to be shockproof thus far, no matter that he often crushes it during goalmouth pileups.
