When the Montreal Canadiens made a stop in Nashville in January, P.K. Subban was still recovering from injury and missed the meeting with his former team. Now almost nine months later Subban has returned to Montreal.
It’s kind of a big deal.
How big of a deal?
The Prime Minister of Canada is tweeting about it.
It’s great to see you standing strong for Montreal’s kids, @PKSubban1. Congrats on the well-deserved honour. #GGCaring https://t.co/PH7xE8YCfw— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) March 1, 2017
Subban might have a new address, but he will always be tied to the city of Montreal. When it comes to hockey you want your star players to eat, sleep, and breath your city. That’s fair, but when it comes to the likes of Subban, his personality and his humility span city limits.
With the launch of his new foundation the P.K. Subban Foundation, he can even bring his new friends to his old city to get in on the cause.
P.K.’s heart might just be big enough for both cities after all.
It’s been pretty quiet the last couple of days across the Preds social media. They’re busy winning games so we’ll let it slide. However it was only a matter of time before Colin Wilson’s teammates were going to have their fun.
A reaction that is some combination of “look ma!”, “I can still score goals!”, and “please tell me they got that on video”. A reaction that even the captain had to caption.
P.A. Parenteau and P.K. Subban once gave us this levitating moment. Add in some gold and I'm ready to see some more like it. #Preds pic.twitter.com/579Jtq5Gb5— Thomas Willis (@TomAWillis) March 1, 2017
Throwback to the time P.K. Subban and newly acquired Predator P.A. Parenteau were teammates. Here’s hoping there’s a lot more of this going into the playoffs.
