Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban -- set to become a restricted free agent in July -- wants to remain with Montreal for the rest of his career, according to a report on Saturday from Arpon Basu of NHL.com.

The 25-year-old, who won gold with Canada at the Olympics earlier this year, just finished the second year of his "bridge" contract that held a $2.8 million average annual value. He talked about his desire to stay put despite his option to explore other opportunities starting July 1, according to the report:

"Since 2007 when I was drafted by Montreal, I think I've made it pretty clear that I want to remain here and play here for a long time, hopefully for the rest of my career. It's a great place to play. I love playing here. I enjoy the fans. They've been completely supportive of myself and the hockey club since I've been here. We've had a lot of good years since I've been here and there's no doubt in my mind that there's a lot more to be accomplished. Hopefully I'm here a long time to do that."

Subban won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman last year and led the Canadiens in scoring these playoffs, recording 14 points in 17 games. He had 10 goals and 43 points during the regular season.
