Subban signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Golden Knights on Tuesday, avoiding arbitration. Subban will be back with Vegas for his third season in Vegas before becoming a restricted free agent again in July 2020. Over his 21 appearances in 2018-19, Subban went 8-10-2 with a 2.93 GAA and .902 save percentage.
Subban filed for salary arbitration Friday, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Subban made 21 appearances a season ago, posting an 8-10-2 record with a 2.93 GAA and .902 save percentage. The 25-year-old has made just $650,000 in each of the past two seasons, so a raise is likely in store for the 24th overall pick from 2012. Subban and the Knights are expected to agree to terms on a deal before the arbitration hearing, so this is essentially a formality.
Subban received a qualifying offer from the Golden Knights on Tuesday, David Schoen of RJ Sports reports. Subban should continue to serve as the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury for Vegas. He's appeared in 43 games (39 starts) in that role over the past two seasons.
Subban will patrol the blue paint for Monday's home clash against Edmonton, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Subban hasn't performed well in his last five starts, going 0-3-2 along with a 3.44 GAA and .885 save percentage in that span. He will draw an Edmonton offense that ranks 20th in the league in goals per game (2.83). With a playoff spot locked up and Marc-Andre Fleury (lower body) dealing with injury, Subban could get the nod for the remaining regular-season games.
Subban allowed four goals on 30 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks on Saturday. It was not a good weekend for Subban, who started both games of a back-to-back situation and lost both. He's on a five-game losing streak, having posted an .882 save percentage during the skid. Subban has suffered two of those five losses in overtime. Overall, he is 7-10-2 with a 3.04 GAA and a .900 save percentage in 20 games this season.
