MONTREAL - Defenceman P.K. Subban will be rejoining the Montreal Canadiens after signing a two-year, US$5.75 million contract on Monday.

He will make $2 million the first year after having earned $875,000 last season on an entry-level contract.

Subban did not attend training camp and missed the first four games of the regular season while negotiating with the NHL club.

The 23-year-old led the team in average ice time per game last season at 24 minutes 18 seconds.

He had seven goals and 29 assists in 81 games and was seventh among NHL defencemen with 205 shots on goal.

In his NHL career, the Toronto native has 21 goals and 55 assists in 160 games.
