Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price suffered an upper-body injury in Monday's loss to the Edmonton Oilers, head coach Dominique Ducharme said postgame, according to TSN's John Lu.

Ducharme also confirmed that the ailment occurred when Oilers forward Alex Chiasson bumped Price in the first period. The bench boss had no further details on the netminder's condition.

Jake Allen replaced Price to start the second period. Price stopped all seven shots he faced in the opening frame.

The 2014-15 Vezina Trophy winner was making his second appearance back following a six-game absence due to a lower-body injury.

The 33-year-old entered Monday's game with a .900 save percentage and 2.67 goals-against average in 24 starts this season.
