"We appreciate P.K.'s contribution to the Predators and the Nashville community over the past three seasons", Poile said in a press release.

"It's on", the superstar defenseman said in a video posted to his personal Twitter hours after New Jersey and the Predators completed a blockbuster trade to kick off the second round of the National Hockey League draft on Saturday. With the addition of Subban and center Jack Hughes, the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NHL Draft, the Devils have a bright fantasy outlook for years to come.

Subban sent out a two-minute video on Twitter to express his appreciation for the past three years in Nashville.

P.K. Subban is ready to dance with the Devils.

The final price to secure the talented offensive defenseman ended up being Steve Santini, Jeremy Davies, a second round pick (#34 overall) in this year's draft, and a second round pick in 2020.

The National Transportation Safety Board said they are sending a team to the site to investigate the crash. Another witness, Travis Hood, told news reporters that he was one of the people who tried to assist .

"We had to make a business decision", the GM said, according to Predators digital manager Thomas Willis.

Minutes before the Subban deal on Saturday morning, the Carolina Hurricanes and Toronto Maple Leafs agreed to the weekend's first player trade. LeBrun reported that the Predators do not retain any of Subban's contract in the deal. But he is coming off a season in which injuries limited him to nine goals and 22 assists in 63 games.

Santini has played parts of the past three seasons for New Jersey.

Davies, 22, who is from Sainte-Anne-de-Belle, Que., was selected by the Devils in the seventh round (192nd overall) at the 2016 NHL Draft and had 8-28-36 totals in 37 games this past season with Northeastern University.
