Montreal, QC, Canada (4E Sports) - The Montreal Canadiens announced that goaltender Carey Price will be sidelined for six weeks due to a lower-body injury that will not require surgery.

Price originally sustained the injury Oct. 29 during a 4-3 loss to the Edmonton Oilers and did not return until Nov 20, a 5-3 win at the New York Islanders.

Price played the return leg of the home and home with the Islanders on Nov 22 and started at the New York Rangers on Nov. 25 but left that game after the second period when he aggravated the original injury.

Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin clarified that Price did not return from the previous injury too early.

Rookie Mike Condon will start in Price's place. He is 8-2-3 with a 2.19 GAA and .916 save percentage in 14 games this season as Price's backup. During Price's previous absence Condon went 5-1-2 with a 2.31 GAA and .909 save percentage in eight games.

Dustin Tokarski , who was Price's backup last season but lost that job to Condon during training camp, will serve as Condon's backup.

"We're going to go with Mike and Dustin and we'll see what the character of this team is," Bergevin said. "I believe in our character. Every team in the NHL goes through periods without key players. Last season we were very lucky."

Last season, Price won the Hart, Vezina and Jennings trophies as well as the Ted Lindsay Award. He is 10-2-0 with a 2.06 goals against average and .934 save percentage in 12 games this season.
