The New Jersey Devils told P.K. Subban he's no longer in their plans

With less than two weeks to go before the NHL trade deadline, many players who will be free agents at the end of the year and who play for a formation that is virtually eliminated from the playoffs, will likely be traded by their respective teams.

And this is the case, among others, of a former Canadians, P.K. Subban. Subban has just 18 points in 54 games this year.

It's pretty much over for him with the Devils.

This was reported by journalist Pierre LeBrun, who works for The Athletic, during an interview he conducted with the general manager of the Devils, former player Tom Fitzgerald.

«I spoke with P.K. Subban on Saturday and we talked about the uncertainty and the deadline, and that we are not in a position where we plan to offer him a contract extension." -Tom Fitzgerald

In fact, not only won't he be back next season, but he could leave even sooner than expected, as Fitzgerald also confirmed he was actively trying to trade him before the trade deadline on next March 21.

But it should be mentioned that due to his salary of 9 million per year, Subban could be difficult to move, since several teams are stuck with the salary cap.

However, he could be a pretty good addition to a team that's already well-endowed on defense and looking to make it a long way in the playoffs.
