Canadiens part ways with D Markov

(TSX / STATS) -- The Montreal Canadiens will not re-sign 16-year veteran defenseman Andrei Markov, the team announced Thursday.

Markov's 119 goals are third-best among Canadiens defensemen. The 38-year-old Russian also recorded 453 assists in 990 career NHL games, with his point total (572) tied with Guy Lapointe for second among franchise defensemen.

Markov collected six goals and 30 assists in 62 games last season, which concluded his three-year, $17.25 million contract. The two-time All-Star is reportedly seeking a two-year, $12 million deal.
