Just weeks away from NHL training camps getting under way in preparation for the 2022-23 season, and veteran defenceman P.K. Subban still doesn't have a contract. Subban became an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career this summer, and given the sharp decline in his game, it wasn't expected that he'd sign anywhere long-term and/or for big money. However, Subban on a short-term low-cost option could be beneficial for a few teams. There were some rumours that the Montreal Canadiens, the team that drafted Subban into the NHL, might be interested in having him on a one-year deal. If that's the case, Subban's agent says they haven't reached out.

Subban's agent, Don Meehan, said in a recent interview that he expects a new deal would come just before the season begins as teams have other priorities right now.

"Teams have expressed interest but aren't in a position to sign now, as they've got other things in play."

"I think there's a place for him that he can contribute to a team and contribute well on a positive basis." - Don Meehan, Montreal Gazette

There was also speculation that Subban's hometown team, the Toronto Maple Leafs, might be interested in signing him. Toronto is currently $1.5 million over the cap, but will make adjustments before the season begins by sending salary to the minors and injured reserve.
