Canadiens News: PK Subban wants to ʺbe a liferʺ

By on 10:07 PM

During an interview with Breakfast Television, Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban said he wants to remain in Montreal for the rest of his career.

Subban is a arbitration-eligible restricted free agent coming off a two-year $5.75M contract that was signed six games into the truncated 2012-2013 season. 

Now, the wait is on again for Habs fans. However even if the contract talks with Subban aren't as successful as intended, his arbitration hearing set for Friday, August 1st.

When Subban met the media at the RBC Charity Golf tournament over the weekend he said talks are still "on-going." He also said, "I'll answer one question about the negotiation: It's been kept pretty quiet the whole time and it's going to remain that way until a deal's done."

According to NHL Radio Correspondent on the Montreal Canadiens Eric Engels wrote,
Last season, Subban played all 82 games, scoring 10 goals and 43 assists with a 24:37 average time on ice during the regular season. He went next-level during the playoffs, playing the most time per game by over two and a half minutes.

Subban is also a Norris Trophy winner and has a gold medal from the 2014 Sochi Olympics. 

All this adds up that he will get a big contract, but time will tell what the full details will be.
