Nashville Predators

P.K. Subban Traded to Devils

As part of a crucial 2019 NHL offseason, the New Jersey Devils made the first big splash as they acquired defenseman P.K. Subban from the Nashville Predators in a package deal. 

The Predators will receive fellow defenseman Steven Santini, prospect Jeremy Davies, and second-round picks from this year and next year. 

Report was confirmed by TSN’s Pierre LeBrun and details were explained by insider Bob McKenzie. 

McKenzie also said the Predators will not retain any of Subban’s salary after the trade. 

The trade took place for the Devils just one day removing after they drafted American forward Jack Hughes at No. 1 overall last night. 

The 30-year-old spent the last three seasons in Nashville, after being traded by the Montreal Canadiens.

His list of accolades includes winning the Norris Trophy for the NHL’s best defenseman in 2013.

He also made the Stanley Cup Finals with the Predators back in 2017, losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games. 

Subban reportedly also had interest from the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks before the Devils trade was finalized.
