Devils acquire P.K. Subban from Predators

VANCOUVER, BC — The New Jersey Devils have acquired defenseman P.K. Subban from the Nashville Predators, in exchange for Steven Santini, Jeremy Davies, and two second-round picks (the 34th overall this season and the team’s 2020 second-rounder).

Subban, 30, has skated in each of the last three NHL All-Star Games (captaining his squad in the last two) and has been named to the NHL First All-Star Team twice.

He was awarded the Norris Trophy as the league’s best defenseman in 2012-13 and won a gold medal for Team Canada at the 2014 Olympics.

Subban is coming off a 31-point season (9-22-31) in which he played only 63 games. The year prior, Subban logged 59 points (16-43-59) in a full 82-game season.

In 645 NHL games, the former second-round pick (2007) of the Montreal Canadiens has 98 goals and 310 assists. He has appeared in 96 playoff games, recording 18 goals and 44 assists.
