Jan 28 (Reuters) - Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban ended his contract holdout on Monday when the restricted free agent agreed to rejoin the Canadiens.
The 23-year-old Canadian will receive a two-year contract worth $5.75 million, according to local reports, and will report to the team on Wednesday after missing the first four games of the season.
"I think it was the right decision to come to an agreement," Subban told reporters. "The longer this thing held over our team, the bigger distraction it becomes."
