The Montreal Canadiens are still waiting for Carey Price to be mentally and physically ready to get back on the ice full time but they just got a big clue he might be close. 

Team Canada general manager Doug Armstrong announced that Price is in their plans for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China. 

Armstrong revealed that right now the plan is to have Price be the starter for Team Canada. 

The Team Canada GM did admit that anything can happen between now and then and they'll respect any decision Price decides to make. 

"And now there's things that are so much more important than playing hockey and he's going through some of those things right now, and if he gets his game up and wants to come and he's playing to that level, he'll be the guy again," Armstrong said.

If Price isn't back on the ice by then, it seems Jordan Binnington will be Canada's starter. 

"The good thing is the guy who won before him is a Canadian and the really good thing was, for me, [that it was] Jordan Binnington. So [for] my day job it's good to have Binner with us, and he's played well this season too," Armstrong said.

Do you think this means Price will be back in a Canadiens uniform soon?
