P.K. Subban Leaves Heartfelt Retirement Message To Fans

Longtime Montreal Canadiens blueliner P.K. Subban has officially announced his retirement in a heartfelt message to his fans.

Subban captured the hearts of every Montreal Canadiens fan during his tenure with the club between 2007 and 2016. The former 2nd round pick in the 2007 draft was an electrifying player that oozed personality on the ice and had star written all over him from the moment he suited up for the Canadiens for the first time in the winter of 2010.

Subban played 511 regular season games with the Montreal Canadiens during his career, where he put up 63 goals and 215 assists for 278 points. He added an impressive 11 goals and 27 assists for 38 points in just 55 games in the playoffs. He went on to win the Norris Trophy after a stellar performance in the shortened 2012-2013 season with the Canadiens and reached a career-high of 60 points while wearing the Bleu, Blanc, Rouge.

He was eventually traded for Shea Weber in the summer of 2016; a trade that shocked the hockey world to its core. Despite the way he left the city, Subban continued to be involved in the community and local charities in the city; including his notable involvement at the Montreal Children’s hospital.

Subban was at his best during the post-season in Montreal. It seemed that, the higher the stakes, the better he was. He always seemed to have a flair for the dramatic and could electrify the Bell Centre with one play. He had the ability to take all the pressure that was thrust upon him and feed off of it like it was his fuel.

At the height of his tenure with the Canadiens, Subban was the go-to-guy on the back-end and could make anything happen out of nothing. Who could ever forget this banger from the 2014 playoffs against the Boston Bruins in Game 3 of the second round.

He went onto to have stints with the Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils before announcing his retirement at 33. Subban will likely have a long list of media outlets looking to recruit him for what is likely to be a very successful commentating career ahead of him. The next step in his career has already been outlines, as the NHL will produce a new show with P.K. Subban called “PK’s Places” that is expected to be out in 2024.

We at Montreal Hockey Now would like to wish P.K. a happy retirement.

Merci PK.
