(MONTREAL) — P.K. Subban can finally return to the ice.
The defenseman signed a two-year, $5.75 million contract with the Montreal Canadians on Monday, paving his return to the club.
“I’m extremely happy to be at this point now where the past is behind us and I can look forward to being integrated to this team and helping them after such a great start,” Subban said. “The longer this thing holds over our team, the bigger a distraction this comes. I’m so happy this decision has been made.”
Subban had been negotiating the contract with the team, causing him to miss the season’s first four games.
Last season, he scored seven goals and had 29 assists while logging 24 minutes of ice time per game.
