NHL PLAYER, PK Subban

BIOGRAPHY

Born May 13, 1989 -- Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Selected by Montreal Canadiens round 2 #43 overall 2007 NHL Entry Draft

Pernell Karl "P. K." Subban (born May 13, 1989) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Subban was drafted by the Canadiens in the second round, 43rd overall, of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

On April 26, 2010, Subban was recalled from Hamilton during the Canadiens' first round playoff series against the Washington Capitals. He recorded his first NHL playoff point, an assist, in his first NHL playoff game, on April 26, 2010. His first goal came in game 1 of the Canadiens' second round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins on April 30, 2010. In game 3 against the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Eastern Conference Finals, P.K. became the third rookie defenceman in Canadiens' history to register three assists in one game. In all, Subban recorded 1 goal and 8 points in 14 playoff games for the Canadiens.

After the Canadiens were eliminated by the Flyers, Subban was returned to the Bulldogs, who were still alive in the Calder Cup Playoffs. Subban was awarded the AHL President's Award in recognition of his accomplishments in the 2009–10 season.

On March 20, 2011, he became the first Canadiens rookie defenceman to score a hat trick in a game. This feat came in an 8–1 victory against the Minnesota Wild.

Playing in 81 games during the 2011–12 NHL season, Subban recorded seven goals to go with 29 assists.

A restricted free agent after the 2011-2012 season, Subban sat out the first four games of 2013 while the two sides negotiated a contract. On January 28, 2013, Subban signed a 2-year deal with Montreal worth $5.75 million.

He scored 11 goals and 27 assists, matching his career-high 38 points despite playing in only 42 games due to the lockout shortened season in 2012-13. At the end of the season, he was awarded with the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the NHL's defenceman of the year, edging-out Kris Letang and Ryan Suter for the honour.

On July 3, 2013, Subban was named to the NHL First All-Star Team.   Subban then played all 82 games during the 2013–14 regular season, in which he registered a total of 53 points, ten of which were goals. During the 2014 playoffs, he was one of Montreal's most important assets, registering 14 points in 17 games as the Canadiens ultimately reached the Eastern Conference Finals, falling to the New York Rangers.  

On September 15, 2014, Subban was named an alternate captain of the Canadiens along with Max Pacioretty, Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Markov as Montreal Head Coach Michel Therrien elected not to award a captaincy following Brian Gionta's departure in off-season.  

Before the 2015–16 season, on September 16, 2015, Subban announced his donation of $10 million to the Montreal Children's Hospital. The hospital called it "the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history." After his donation, Subban continued his commitment as spokesman and organized the Winter Wonderland with Air Canada at the hospital before the holidays.  

On June 29, 2016, Subban was traded to the Nashville Predators in exchange for defenceman Shea Weber.

Playing his first game in a Bruins uniform, Iginla looked more than comfortable on a line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, a probable trio for game 1 of the regular season.  As for the Subbans, both excelled for their respective squads. While PK scored on the power play, Malcolm stopped all 12 shots he faced in just over 30 minutes of ice time.

PK Subban one of three finalists for Norris Trophy May 07, 2013

After a stellar season saw him net 11 goals and 27 assists in 42 games, the 23-year-old D-man earned his first ever James Norris Memorial Trophy nomination. Subban, along with Kris Letang and Ryan Suter, were the three nominees for the award to be handed out by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association to the defenseman who showed the “greatest all-round ability.”

The Toronto, Ontario native improved in practically every category this year. After scoring 36 points in 81 games in 2011-12, the offensive defenseman managed 38 this season in just 42 games.  From a defensive standpoint, it was also his best year in terms of +/-, finishing with a mark of +12.  His standout play was one of the main reasons why the Canadiens made a complete 360º this year, going from dead last to 2nd best in the Eastern conference.

Welcome Back! Leafs, Wild, Islanders and Habs return to the playoffs April 29, 2013

In a shortened season with storylines a plenty, the playoffs begin with a decidedly “old school vibe”, as a number of teams with legendary pasts return to the fold.  Most notable of all are the Toronto Maple Leafs, coming back after a dry spell kept them out since the 2003-04 season. They will take on their old rivals the Boston Bruins, a classic original six matchup that should prove to be a hard-hitting, action-packed affair.

The Islanders and Wild return after not making the playoffs since 07’ and 08’, respectively. Both teams will look to do better this time around. Neither has made it out of the first round since the Wild advanced all the way to the conference finals in 02-03.

For what makes the Islanders a fun team to watch in these playoffs, click on the SB Nation write-up  here.

As for the Canadiens, It has only been a year since they last qualified, but it was the turnaround from last year that was so impressive. After finishing 15th in the east in the 2011-12 season, few could have imagined a 2nd place finish this year.

PK Subban A Serious Norris Trophy Candidate April 02, 2013 – Montréal, Québec - Fred Poulin, The Hockey Writers, Writer

After missing the first six games of the 2013 season because of a contract dispute, PK Subban finally signed a two-year pact worth $5.75 million with the Montreal Canadiens. The bridge contract has proven to be a genius move by rookie general manager Marc Bergevin when we look at Subban’s production on the ice. Thanks to his improved attitude and near-perfect play, the 23-year-old rearguard has shut up his most severe critics since the beginning of the season.

In 28 games for the Canadiens, the puck-moving defenseman is leading all NHL blue liners with 10 goals to go along with 17 assists for 27 points, good for 3rd in the NHL, only one point behind Kris Letang and Ryan Suter, who both have 28 points. The Toronto native has also cut down dramatically on his penalty minutes after earning 124 and 118 penalty minutes in the past two campaigns respectively. So far in 2013, Subban has only received 22 penalty minutes with no more than 4 penalty minutes in a single game.

If P.K. Subban's not an impact player, who is? March 14, 2013 – Montréal, Québec - Chris Stevenson, QMI Agency

MONTREAL  - It has been a quieter – but not gentler – P.K. Subban this season on the Montreal Canadiens blueline.

You can close your eyes and hear the Canadiens defenceman’s game, if not his voice, which, for the most part, has become noticeably absent in the soundtrack of this remarkable Canadiens season.
