Defenseman P.K. Subban knows where he wants to be for the rest of his career.
Subban is scheduled for an arbitration meeting on Aug. 1 after finishing up a two-year, $3.75 million contract. He said earlier this week that he would like to stay with the team for the remainder of his career.
"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 on Toronto’s "Breakfast Television."
Subban finished last season with 53 points — fifth-best among NHL defensemen. This came a year after he was awarded the Norris Trophy for the league’s top defensive player. He has been consistently one of the NHL’s premier D-men since coming into the league in 2010.
Subban did not want to discuss the contract situation while competing at the RBC Canadian Open golf tournament on Saturday.
