Carey Price publicly calls out Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Price shares his opinion.

Jonathan Larivee

In spite of the fact that he isn't currently active in the National Hockey League it seems Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price has been keeping busy, and he may even be jumping into the political sphere.

On Saturday the long time NHL goaltender took to social media to publicly call out Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over a mandatory gun buyback that has been a hot topic of debate in Canadian politics. Trudeau has faced challenges on the buyback from provincial governments including those in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and New Brunswick and it would now seem that he can add Carey Price to the list of those skeptical of his policy.

Here is what Price had to say on the matter via his instagram:

I love my family, I love my country and I care for my neighbour. I am not a criminal or a threat to society. What Justin Trudeau is trying to do is unjust. I support the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights to keep my hunting tools. Thank you for listening to my opinion.

The post was accompanied by a photo of Price holding a firearm, seemingly out hunting somewhere as his caption for the photo would suggest. The Canadiens goaltender was also wearing a camouflage outfit and a very serious look on his face in the photo.

It was also clear that Price wasn't alone in this opinion among hockey players, with both former NHLers Scottie Upshall and Andrew Shaw expressing their agreement on Price's Instagram post which you can see just below.
