It appears that Carey Price is recovering by leaps and bounds as the days roll on.
The Montreal Canadiens' star goaltender has been recovering from a lower-body injury that's kept him out of the lineup since Nov. 25.
On Thursday, Price was back on the ice in full equipment, facing shots for the first time since suffering the ailment, according to TVA Sports Renaud Lavoie.
Price was named to Team Canada's 16-man preliminary roster for the World Cup of Hockey on Wednesday, despite him not being fit to play for the last several months.
While the Habs have yet to place a timetable for his return, it appears as though last year's Hart Trophy winner is making his way towards an eventual return to the lineup.
The 28-year-old posted an impressive record of 10-2-0 with a 2.06 GAA and .934 save percentage before suffering the injury.
This is good news for Canadiens' fans amidst a nightmare season for the franchise.
