Carey Price is on FIRE!!!!!!

17 yr old Carey Price recorded his 3rd shutout in a row and now has 5 on the season! Price made 48 saves for the shutout last night against Portland and is moving up the draft rankings as people have said he would. I believe he has been in some Top 10's for 2005 and is starting to solidify to those rankings. As long as he keeps it up he will be the first goalie taken in '05 and possibly in the top 5! He has great size at 6'3.

I've thought of him for a while as the top North American goalie available this year. Good to see him doing well, and hopefully he keeps it up.

Good to hear. Where do you think he'll go, in the draft? Mid 1st round?

Carey Price is part of a three goaltender race right now and could go as high as just outside of the top 5? For that to happen Levasseur would have to continue to play incosistant and Rask would have to play sub-par at the WJC's.

Redline has him ranked third for goaltenders but he's at 8th overall I believe. That's the only ranking i've seen of him in the top 10, so 14-22 is a good range at the moment.

Like we've seen before much of it will depend on the WJC's. If Rask sucks, he could go in the top 7,6, or even 5. Depends on whos picking too.

Still very early to guess where he might go - by the end of the season he might not even be considered the best goalie from the Dub any more. Granted I'm a homer, but Tyler Plante has appeared to won the starting job in Brandon and has been playing amazing lately - stole a game against Seattle a week ago with a 40 save performance and his numbers for the season are very solid. He also proved last year he can come up big under pressure as he pretty much singlehandedly took the Brandon midgets through the regional qualifiers and then to the national championship title. Look for him to rise steadily through the rankings before season end. Unfortunately, I have never seen Price play as we only get them once every two years here in Brandon, and when they came this year, they played the backup goalie.

You should make it a 4 horse race with Alex Vincent.

I think above JP but below Price and Rask. I think BOTH of Price and Rask should go ahead of JP.

Hi Bryan, you're good friends with Mitch Fadden right? Well my mom works with his mom.

Probably an obvious choice and as easy as it gets for the league.....

Calgary - The Greyhound WHL Player of the Week is goaltender Carey Price of the Tri-City Americans. Price earned Player of the Week honors by recording three consecutive shutout wins during the week of December 13th to December 19th. Price recorded 89 saves in the three wins and currently has a shutout string of 207 minutes and 46 seconds.

On Wednesday, December 15th, Price recorded 21 saves in a 3-0 shutout victory against the Silvertips in Everett.

On Friday, December 17th, Price stopped all 48 shots he faced in a 5-0 shutout win against the Winter Hawks in Portland. On Saturday, December 18th, Price made 20 saves in a 6-0 shutout victory against the visiting Vancouver Giants.

Price, a 17-year-old from Williams Lake, British Columbia, is eligible for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Price is right on!

Price should be the best of the 87 goaltenders. Best puckhandling skills I've seen for a goalie his age. Has terrific technique and size. Will get much better as he matures. Might be a top 5 pick in the next draft.

Congratulations are in order for his CHL Player of the Week.
