P.K. Subban Signs with Montreal Canadiens

P.K. Subban signed a 2-year deal worth $5.75 million with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday according to ESPN. Subban and the Canadiens had not been able to come to terms prior to the start of this NHL season.  The 23-year old defenseman and restricted free agent had 36 points in 81 games for the Canadiens last season.  According to Dave Stubbs on Twitter, it seems as if Subban has been keeping in shape while not playing with the Canadiens:

Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy, has reported via Louis Jean of TVA, that the deal is for $2 million in the first year and $3.75 in the second.  The cap hit, according to will be $2.875 for each of the two contract years. 

With the Montreal Canadiens playing good hockey to start the 2012-13 season, their urgency to sign Subban may not have been as immediate, which could have affected the terms of the contract.  In any case, it's good to have one of the premier young players in the game back on the world's biggest hockey stage.
