Canadiens to play P.K. Subban tonight vs. Caps

Subban.jpgThe Washington Capitals Montreal Canadiens have recalled defensive prospect P.K. Subban from the Hamilton Bulldogs, who will play in tonight’s Game 6 against the Washington Capitals.

Subban played in two games this season for the Canadiens, his first professional season in the AHL after being drafted in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Subban has the ability to be a very productive defenseman from the blueline, putting up 18 goals and 35 assists this past season with Hamilton.

With Subban in the lineup, Sergei Kostitsyn and Mathieu Darche will be scratched.

It’s an interesting callup, and one that some felt was needed before the playoff series started. With the Canadiens once again facing elimination tonight, this could be Subban’s lone playoff game this season in the NHL.

    One more thing…Subban is getting great playoff experience in Hamilton right now. The Bulldogs are a real threat to win the Calder Cup, and are through to the second round already. So even if the Habs do miraculously pull off a win in this series, I would not be surprised to see PK sent back to Hamilton for some serious playing time.
