Big news! The Remembrance Day Mask that was designed by David Arrigo and worn by Carey for a couple games in November was recently auctioned at Legends Depot. Proceeds from the auction would go to four worthy causes: the Montreal Children’s Hospital, Wounded Warriors, The Soldier On Program, and The Quebec MFRC. We are happy to announce that the auction ended yesterday with a final value of $15,000! WOW!
Voting for the 2012 NHL All-Star Game in Ottawa is well underway. If you haven’t already voted for Carey yet, what are you waiting for? Head over to http://vote.nhl.com and start voting today!
To help promote Carey, the Canadiens have posted the following video on the official website:
Also, Carey has once again been named the Molson Cup winner for the Canadiens for November. This is the second month in a row this season that he has won the award. There will be a pre-game ceremony on Tuesday night before the Canadiens take on the Columbus Blue Jackets and former teammate James Wisniewski.
Fun fact: of Carey’s 10 wins so far this season, he has allowed 1 or fewer goals in 7 of those games. Amazing stat!

Well we called it the other day, Price fans!
Based off his stellar play this past week, during which he only allowed two goals in three games, Carey has been named the NHL First Star of the Week!
Here is the official release from NHL.com:
On the strength of two shutouts, Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price was named the NHL’s First Star for this week.
Price stopped 25 shots in a 4-0 win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday, then stopped 17 shots in a 4-0 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday, Price made 30 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss against the Buffalo Sabres on Monday.

Although the Canadiens got off to a bit of a slow start, they seem to have turned the corner and are heating up during the month of November. At the centre of it all is Carey Price, who has put together a record of 4-2-1 in his 7 games this month. In only one game has he allowed more than two goals, and he put together back-to-back shutouts against Carolina and Buffalo this past week.
A few weeks ago he went 3-0-0 with a 1.33 GAA and .950 SV%, which was good enough to be named the NHL First Star of the Week.
This week’s numbers? 2-0-1 with a 0.65 GAA and .973 SV% and 2 shutouts!
We think Carey should be the First Star of the Week again – how about you?
