Subban (neck) will not be in the lineup on Saturday.

Thankfully for the Canadiens and Subban owners, he suffered what is being classified as a “minor neck injury.” Despite the injury not being as serious as it originally looked, Subban is still day-to-day and will be sidelined for Saturday’s game. With Subban out, the Canadiens have just five healthy defensemen, so they will likely recall a blueliner from St. John’s on Friday afternoon.

Subban (neck) left Thursday’s game and was taken to hospital; was released later in the evening.

Subban had to be taken off of the ice on a stretcher after being hit in the head by teammate Alexei Emelin. Subban was admitted to a nearby hospital for evaluation, but was released later in the night. Not having to spend the night at the hospital is a good sign that Subban’s neck injury is not as serious as originally feared. He will likely miss Saturday’s game, but at least it doesn’t look like his season is over.

On Saturday, the Canadiens signed P.K Subban to an eight-year deal worth $72 million.

Subban, 25, filed for salary arbitration, but the Canadiens were able to work out a long-term deal with the 2012-12 Norris Trophy winner. He set a career high and finished fifth among defensemen in points with 53 (10G / 43A) in 2013-14. His $9 million dollar annual cap-hit makes him the highest paid NHL D-man by $1.2 over Shea Weber and even more than Sidney Crosby. He is a top-20 fantasy pick this season and could crack the first round in some drafts.
