MONTREAL - Rookie goaltender Carey Price was recalled by the Montreal Canadiens on Monday after a 10-game stint with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL.

Goalie Jaroslav Halak was returned to Hamilton. Price was 6-4-0 with one shutout and a 2.69 goals-against average with the Bulldogs. He was 9-7-3 in 19 games for the Canadiens before he was sent down to Hamilton on Jan. 8 to rebuild his flagging confidence.

Halak played only 39 minutes in two games while backing up veteran Cristobal Huet in Montreal.
