Markov soon to sign for two years: report


According to Tony Marinaro of the Team 990, the Canadiens will soon re-sign all-star defenceman Andrei Markov for two season.

The deal is reportedly valued at $11.5 million.

The Russian blue-liner has missed most of the last two seasons with various injuries, playing only 52 games.

After the report spread via Twitter, Markov’s agent, Don Meehan, denied a deal was imminent this week, but added a deal could be done by next week. Meehan is supposed to meet with Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier in Minnesota later this week during the NHL entry draft.
