Carey Price hopes to take care of unfinished business with the Montreal Canadiens.

Following a first-round playoff exit at the hands of the New York Rangers, the Canadiens’ superstar goalie reiterated his desire to remain with the club.

“I want to stay here,” Price said Monday, per John Lu of TSN. “I know we’ll figure out a way to make all the pieces fit and bring a championship here.”

Price can become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, and has the option to sign a contract extension with the Canadiens as soon as July 1. According to Amanda Stein of TSN 690, he’s indeed open to begin discussions with general manager Marc Bergevin at that juncture.

Montreal’s inability to get out of the first round shouldn’t be pinned on Price, who recorded a .933 save percentage in six games against the Rangers.

And despite being bested by Henrik Lundqvist in the series, Price’s next contract is expected to come in higher than the $8.5-million cap hit carried by the Rangers goaltender.
