Report: P.K. Subban Weighing His Options For Next Career Step



P.K. Subban

Former Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban is reportedly mulling over some offers for his next career move.

According to National Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy, the 33-year-old has a very lucrative opportunity to join ESPN, amongst other networks, in a commentating role as early as this season. Subban’s camp is looking to have something in place by the time the season kicks off next month and the belief is that he may be dipping his toes in more than one venture.

This shouldn’t be surprising to most who have followed the energetic personality that is P.K. Subban; he’s been stellar in his brief commentating stints and looked like a natural last Stanley Cup Playoffs with ESPN. A decision is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

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 announced his retirement via a heartfelt message on Instagram below:

ESPN seems a natural fit, for the network and for the NHL in the United States.
