Defenseman P.K. Subban says he would like to sign with the Montreal Canadiens long term as his arbitration hearing approaches.
"Obviously I remain adamant on remaining in Montreal and being a Montreal Canadien, and not just for a long time but hopefully for the rest of my career, and be a lifer there," Subban said. "I really enjoy playing (in Montreal)." Subban, 25, earned $3.75 million, with a $2.875 million NHL salary-cap charge, in the final season of a two-year contract. He was the NHL's fifth-highest scoring defenseman with 53 points in 82 games and led the Canadiens with 14 points in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, averaging 27:26 of ice time per game. The restricted free agent and the Canadiens have an arbitration hearing scheduled for Aug. 1. Negotiations are ongoing. Jul 26 - 7:18 PM

P.K. Subban's arbitration hearing is scheduled for August 1.

Since the Montreal Canadiens signed Subban to a two-year, $5.75 million, he has won the Norris Trophy and enjoyed a 53-point campaign. Regardless of whether or not this makes it to arbitration, Subban should cash in big this summer.
Jul 9 - 4:26 PM

P.K. Subban has filed for salary arbitration.

That means he cannot accept an offer sheet from another club and the team has choice of one- or two-year award. The two sides will continue to work on a new contract before his hearing, which doesn't have date scheduled yet. Subban scored 10 goals and 53 points in 82 games last season. He also had five markers and 14 points in 17 playoff contests.
Jul 5 - 6:04 PM

With no deal imminent between the Canadiens and P.K. Subban, look for the Habs' defenseman to request salary arbitration before Saturday's 5:00 pm deadline.

Restricted free agents have until Saturday at 5:00 pm ET to request arbitration and Subban will certainly excercise his rights. There is still a very good chance the two sides will hammer out a long-term contract before the arbitrator makes any binding decisions.
Jul 5 - 9:45 AM

Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin met with agent Don Meehan Thursday to discuss a potential new contract for defenseman P.K. Subban.

Subban is set to hit the jackpot this summer after playing exceptionally well over the course of a two-year deal that paid him an average of just $2.875MM the last two seasons. The Habs are definitely interested in signing him, but it remains to be seen what the ultimate price tag will be for his services.
Jun 26 - 7:47 PM

Agent Don Meehan will reportedly meet with Montreal GM Marc Bergevin at the draft this weekend to discuss a new contract with P.K. Subban.

He had a salary cap hit of $2.875 over the past two seasons, but his next contract will be significantly higher. Subban is a restricted free agent and his new deal is at the top of the Canadiens' off-season to-do list.
Jun 24 - 6:41 PM

P.K. Subban is believed to be seeking a contract in excess of Alex Pietrangelo's seven-year, $45.5 million deal.

Subban has been a steal over his two-year, $5.75 million contract and now it's time for him to cash in. That being said, he's only eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer, so in the unlikely event that Montreal can't hammer out a long-term contract with him, the two sides will presumably settle on a one-year deal.
Jun 17 - 2:30 PM

P.K. Subban, a restricted free agent this offseason, hopes to stay with the Canadiens "for the rest of his career."

Subban, who will become an RFA on July 1, just finished the second year of his "bridge" contract that carried a $2.875 million average annual value, but he holds much more leverage now. "Since 2007 when I was drafted by Montreal, I think I've made it pretty clear that I want to remain here and play here for a long time, hopefully for the rest of my career," Subban said. "It's a great place to play. I love playing here. I enjoy the fans. They've been completely supportive of myself and the hockey club since I've been here. We've had a lot of good years since I've been here and there's no doubt in my mind that there's a lot more to be accomplished. Hopefully I'm here a long time to do that." Subban recorded 10 goals and 43 points during the regular season, with 14 points in 17 playoff games.
May 31 - 9:34 PM

P.K. Subban did his best to stay positive after Montreal was knocked out of the postseason on Thursday night.

"It's not what we wanted, but there are some positives," said Subban after the Canadiens' 1-0 loss to the New York Rangers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final. "First and foremost, you have to give them credit. They did a lot of things well to win the game. I thought we, at times, did enough things to win as well. Today, they were opportunists. They scored a big goal and they really committed themselves to shutting us down." Subban logged a game-high 27:04 of ice time in Thursday's defeat. He registered four shots and two blocks. Subban had just a goal and one assist in the series, but he finished the postseason with a team-leading 14 points in 17 games.

He has four goals and 12 points, to go with 12 penalty minutes in the playoffs. He also had six shots on goal Saturday night. Brendan Gallagher netted the other marker for Montreal.

May 6 - 10:04 PM

P.K. Subban made it clear he does not hold the Bruins or their fan base accountable for alleged racial slurs made against him.

"What people may say on Twitter or social media is not a reflection by any means of the league or the Boston Bruins", said Subban Subban has been classy throughout this incident and deserves a tremendous amount of credit for how he has handled a situation that could have gotten even uglier.
May 4 - 1:46 PM

P.K. Subban collected two assists in Game 2, but the Canadiens dropped a 5-3 decision to the Boston Bruins.

May 3 - 4:01 PM

Boston Bruins President Cam Neely issued a statement Friday that distanced the Bruins from the racist tweets sent out on Thursday night by fans regarding Habs defenseman P.K. Subban.

Subban scored the overtime winner Thursday and some idiotic Boston fans tweeted about Subban. We won't go into what was said but needless to say it did not reflect well on the city of Boston. Neely stated the tweets were racist and classless. "I certainly share the thoughts of Cam, and our organization. It's just poor judgment, poor taste, and we don't associate ourselves with people like that. People who think that way are not what we call our fans," coach Claude Julien said. "They may think they are, but we certainly don't support that at all. It's a shame that this is still going around in this day and age, and that people are still thinking that way. For us it's a shame and it's certainly not getting our support."
