MONTREAL – Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban and centreman Lars Eller, were amongst 20 players who filed for salary arbitration on Saturday.
Subban who played 82 games for the CH is coming off a stellar season that saw him score 10 goals and 53 points. He also garnered 14 points in 17 playoff matches.
Eller was less successful with only 12 goals and 26 points in 77 games played. This compared to the 2012-13 season where he totaled 30 points in just 46 games. The Danish player did however score 5 goals in the Canadiens latest playoff run.
Cases will be heard in Toronto between July 20 and August 4. Players however can continue to negotiate with their respective teams and reach an agreement before their case is heard.
Other notable players who chose arbitration include Derick Brassard from the Rangers, James Reimer from the Leafs and Kevin Poulin from the Islanders.
