Canadiens rookie goalie Cayden Primeau was asked after practice Friday in Brossard to describe his relationship with Carey Price.

“I’m not sure … probably big brother, little brother,” Primeau said. “But he’s been nothing but great and super supportive. I try to stay out of his way, but like I said he’s been super supportive. So I can’t say any more nice things about him.”

The big brother had the little brother’s back after Primeau recorded his first NHL victory Wednesday night, making 35 saves in a 3-2 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators at the Bell Centre. The Senators’ Brady Tkachuk picked up the puck after Ben Chiarot scored the winning goal in OT and was leaving the ice with it when he was stopped by Price.

  Canadiens seek a spark with promotions of goalie Primeau, forward Peca Goalie Cayden Primeau will be in a Canadiens uniform Tuesday when they play the New York Islanders at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., TSN2, RDS, TSN 690 Radio). It seems unlikely Primeau will get the start ahead of Carey Price, but the 20-year-old will suit up for his first NHL game after he was called up from the AHL’s Laval Rocket Monday afternoon, along with forward Matthew Peca. Earlier in the day, the Canadiens placed backup goalie Keith Kinkaid on NHL waivers.

“That means so much,” Primeau said. “(Price) probably doesn’t even realize how much it means to me that he got a piece of that night there I’ll be able to have for the rest of my life.”

Tkachuk, who is known as a pest and tangled with Shea Weber during Wednesday’s game, claimed he was going to give the puck to a fan as a souvenir, but most likely knew exactly what he was doing when he tried to take away the special souvenir. Primeau and Tkachuk were teammates for international play at the U-18 level with Team USA.

Early signs point to Cayden Primeau being a legitimate NHL goaltender.I don’t know what Marc Bergevin was planning with making Cayden Primeau the backup goaltender to Carey Price. The Montreal Canadiens were beyond struggling when they made the call-up, and I honestly thought it was a terrible idea to throw a 20-year-old netminder to the wolves as it were.
