Hockey betting fans and local bookies were very happy to learn that on Saturday, the Montreal Canadiens announced that the team and restricted free agent P.K. Subban agreed on an eight-year extension through the 2021-22 season, and True Live Betting services see this as a very good move by both team and player.

And True Live Betting services could see that many hockey betting fans were delighted when they learned about the deal.
“We are very pleased to have reached a long term agreement with P.K. Subban,” general manager Marc Bergevin said.
“This agreement helps consolidate the future of our team. A key element of our group of young veterans, P.K. plays with a high level of intensity every time he steps onto the ice. Despite his young age, he carries a great deal of experience and brings contagious energy to the team. Defensemen of his level are a rare commodity in the NHL.”
Subban, 25-years-old, expressed his excitement about the deal via Twitter, and True Live Betting services saw that many hockey betting fans were also thrilled.
Thank you to @canadiensmtl for making a commitment to myself and my family. Im Excited about the future! #letsgetit

The talented defenseman who’s very well known with local bookies and makes great hockey scores is coming off the last season of a $5.75 million, two-year deal. If an agreement wasn’t reached, the player would have turned into a restricted free agent again next season.
