PRESS RELEASE

MONTREAL (January 31, 2014) – Canadiens’ goaltender Carey Price is the Molson Cup recipient for the month of January. He earns this honour for the second time this season after winning it in October. Max Pacioretty was the November recipient and Tomas Plekanec the December winner.

Price was selected twice as the first star of the game (on January 16 at Ottawa and on January 28 against Carolina), as well as three times as the third star (on January 4 against Ottawa, on January 6 against Florida and the 11 against Chicago). Price finished ahead of teammates Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher.

The 26-year old goaltender had a 5-5-1 record in 11 games in January, including his third shutout of the season, a 3-0 win on January 28 against the Hurricanes.

In 2013-14, the Molson Cup scoring system awards three points for a first star selection, two points for a second star selection and a single point for a third star selection.
 
Carey Price will be presented with the Molson Cup during a ceremony prior to the Saturday, February 1 game against the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Bell Centre.
