Hockey night in Saint-Hyacinthe! @laTDJ

Carey Price returned to action last night for the first time since a concussion sent him to the sidelines late last season.

It wasn’t quite what he had in mind, however.

Price was in goal for Team Quebec in a charity fundraiser organized by NHLers Bruno Gervais and Max Talbot, and the Habs’ netminder was on the losing end of a 7-4 score to Team Montreal.

Still, Price said it felt good to go out there and play in a game. However, at the same time, he expressed his frustration over the NHL lockout, which has wiped out the first two weeks of the regular season — and counting.

Price said he doesn’t have any immediate plans to head overseas, but admitted he’d send out some feelers if the situation drags on.
