BROSSARD, Que.--Carey Price and P.K. Subban will no longer celebrate a Montreal Canadiens' victory with their signature "triple low-fives" move this season.
Price said Friday the act has been banned in favour of a team celebration.
"There's going to be no low-fives this year," said Price. "There's only a team celebration at the end of the game."
Asked if he was OK with that, Price said yes.
The low-fives were a popular act with fans as the two young stars would face each other and slap hands together at waist level after a win. The Canadiens used to have pictures of it on their web site.
But coach Michel Therrien has stressed what he calls the "team concept" since taking over this season and wants the players doing things together rather than as individuals.
