New Jersey Devils Likely To Expose P.K. Subban in Expansion Draft

PK Subban expansiond raft

After acquiring defenseman Ryan Graves from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Mikhail Maltsev and a second-round selection, it seems there will be a surprise player left unprotected in the expansion draft.

That player is 32 year old P.K. Subban. Subban, who is entering the last year of his deal that carries a $9,000,000 cap hit was visually not himself last season with just 19 points in 44 games and was also a less than stellar -16 on the year.

It now appears as though the New Jersey Devils would like to move in a different direction and use his $9,000,000 cap hit to improve other areas of their team.

Here is what sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman had to say:

I think it’s possible, it sounds like they are going (protecting) Severson, Graves and Siegenthale so that would not only leave Subban exposed, it would leave Will Butcher exposed too and a couple of their remianing UFAs.
