MONTREAL (AP) -Prospects Carey Price, Ryan O'Byrne, Mikhail Grabovski and Kyle Chipchura remain in the Montreal Canadiens' training camp following Monday's preseason roster cuts.
Matt D'Agostini and Sergei Kostitsyn were among the 27 players assigned to the organization's AHL training camp, which begins Tuesday in Hamilton, Ont. Forwards Ben Maxwell and Ryan White were returned to their junior teams.
Price, a 20-year-old goalie chosen fifth overall by Montreal in 2005, defenseman O'Byrne and forwards Grabovski and Chipchura are among the 26 players still with the Canadiens.
Price, who is widely expected to continue his development in Hamilton, is working toward a backup spot behind starter Cristobal Huet with Jaroslav Halak, who had a strong showing as a Canadiens rookie at the end of last season.
