The Winter Classic will be without its best player, as reigning Hart Trophy and Vezina Trophy winner Carey Price will not be able to suit up for the Jan. 1 outdoor game between the Bruins and Canadiens. The Habs announced via Twitter Monday that Price, who has played in just 12 of Montreal'€™s 25 games this season, will be out for at least six more weeks due to what'€™s been reported to be a knee injury. That puts a potential return somewhere in mid-January.

While keeping one of the sport'€™s best players off the ice will take away from the Winter Classic, it will at least provide some good news locally in that Holliston native and Belmont Hill product Mike Condon will be Montreal'€™s starting goaltender while Price is out.
