Canadiens' P.K. Subban to rely on arbitrator's decision
Fri, 01 Aug 2014 22:32:45 +0000
Toronto, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - Defenseman P.K. Subban will no longer negotiate for a longer term with the Montreal Canadiens pending the arbitrator's decision.
The arbitrator has 48 hours to decide after a hearing was conducted Friday in Toronto and negotiations can continue until the decision comes down.
But Subban and his agent, Don Meehan, emphasized there are no plans for this.
"Ultimately we have to live with those decisions and move on from here," said Subban.
A restricted free agent, Subban, 25, was seeking a long-term contract leading up to the hearing.
"At the end of the day, I'm just ready to move on, and continue to support my team and my teammates and get ready for the season."
Subban tied for fifth among NHL defensemen last season with 53 points (10 goals) in 82 games and led the Canadiens with 14 points in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, averaging 27:26 of ice time per game.
He earned $3.75 million last season in the final season of a two-year contract.
