Star Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban has been traded to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber.
“He provided the Canadiens organization with strong performances on the ice and generous commitment in the community. I wish him the best of luck with the Predators.”
This comes just days after the GM insisted he wasn’t “shopping” Subban.
“When a GM calls me I don’t know who he’s calling me about so I answer the phone,” he had said.
Subban, 27, was a fan favourite, having most recently signed on to host a Just For Laughs gala on Aug 1.
The Toronto native had six years remaining on his contract and scored six goals with 45 assists in the 68 games he played during the 2015-16 season.
He was also applauded for donating $10 million to the Montreal Children’s Hospital over seven years.
