Subban excited with trade to Devils

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) P.K. Subban wasn't exactly shocked Saturday when the six-time NHL defenseman was traded from the Nashville Predators to the New Jersey Devils.

"I've been through the process before," Subban said in a conference call with the media Sunday. "There was a lot of talk after the season about what the Predators would do. Being in a (salary) cap world, every time you're up against the cap and when you draft well, you have to pay players. We kind of knew that there would be changes, especially after losing in the first round (of the NHL playoffs to the Dallas Stars). I didn't know what to expect."

But when Subban got the call while in California that he had been traded to the Devils for defenseman Steven Santini, prospect Jeremy Davies and second-round draft picks Saturday and in 2020, the 2013 Norris Trophy winner was elated.
