Canadiens give Carey Price the nod for Thursday's season-opener
Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price will start Thursday's road game against the Buffalo Sabres.
Price started 62 games for the Habs last season, posting a 2.23 goals against average and a .923 save percentage -- his lowest since the 2012-13 season. He will continue to be Montreal's top netminder this season, while Al Montoya will also see some playing time, having started 18 games last year.
numberFire's models have Price as the day's top fantasy goalie. He is priced at $9,200 on FanDuel, and we project him for 28.0 saves, 2.1 goals against and a 57.0% chance to score a win -- good for 21.3 fantasy points.
