A radio station in Montreal radio station alleged on Thursday morning that the Canadiens had traded 22-year old goalie Carey Price to the Blackhawks for Cristobal Huet. Price, , Montreal’s top draft pick a couple years ago, has lost the starting job in Montreal to Jaroslav Halak, and is reportedly on the trading block.
The rumor, however, is false.
Other reports have killed the idea, largely because Huet has had two good games in a row and is slated to start in net for the Hawks in Nashville Thursday night. Bob Gainey, the GM in Montreal , has not publicly commented on the situation, either.
Check back for updates if any come, but the Canadiens wouldn’t figure to want Huet’s contract and the Hawks don’t appear to be in the mindset that they need to make a move with their goalies.
