Predators trade Subban to Devils

Predators trade Subban to Devils

Some of Subban's success depends on the health of New Jersey's top forwards, but he should see increased ice time from his 22:40 per game this season, the second lowest in a full season of his National Hockey League career.

The Devils sent a pair of young defensemen - Steve Santini and Jeremy Davies - and second-round draft picks (2019 and '20) in exchange for the superstar in a deal many are calling another massive win for the club.

Bettman said on December 3 that the league's salary cap will likely fall somewhere in the US$83-million range in 2019-20.

The first round of the draft featured just one trade. The league year begins with the start of free agency July 1.

Santini, 24, was the Devils' second-round pick in 2013.

The move is basically a salary dump by the Predators with Subban, 30, having three seasons left on the eight-year, US$72-million contract he signed with the Canadiens. The Maple Leafs face a cap crunch in opening talks to re-sign forward Mitchell Marner, a restricted free agent after completing his three-year rookie contract.

"We appreciate P.K.'s contribution to the Predators and the Nashville community over the past three seasons", Poile said in a press release.

Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said the lack of deals on Friday was an indication of a strong pool of top prospects.

"I'm a Devil. Let's go".

Pinto is from Franklin Square, New York, and his selection continued a trend in which 11 American players were chosen in the first round - one short of the record set in 2016 draft.

The trade activity could be picking up on Saturday because teams have a better idea of what the salary-cap ceiling will be next season.
