Subban and Habs Await Arbitration Ruling

The Montreal Canadiens and defenceman P.K. Subban took part in their arbitration hearing on Friday, with the two sides unable to come to an agreement on a contract extension. “This whole process has been kind of an educational process for me,” Subban said. “Obviously there’s dialogue and discussion and decisions were made today in relations […]
