Canadiens Fans Give Subban Ovation, Triple Low-Five Returns



Montreal Canadiens

When it comes to making an impact on the Montreal Canadiens and their fans, few players have matched P.K. Subban.

Unfortunately, due to an unceremonious divorce with the team, Subban’s departure created a rift within the fanbase, as well as cold relationship with the team that drafted him.

The Canadiens decided to heal the wound by reaching out to the Norris Trophy winner, an idea that was spearheaded by Chantal Machabée, the new vice president of communications.

Seeing as he quickly became a fan favourite and remains one of the most popular former players to have played for the Habs, Machabée understood the importance of bringing a player like Subban back into the fold.

The Canadiens held a ceremony to highlight Subban’s excellence during his time, and Subban took the time to come out and thank the fans.

Most notably, he spoke of the pride he felt in wearing the Canadiens and his notable contributions to the Montreal Children’s Hospital.

It was a heartwarming speech from Subban, and the Canadiens faithful supported his every word, and gave him a huge ovation as he concluded his ceremony in French; thanking fans for their unwavering support.

Even Carey Price made an appearance for a triple low-five!

Subban played parts of seven seasons with the Canadiens, finishing among the top 10 defencemen in franchise scoring history, with 63 goals and 215 assists in 434 games.

He would go on to play another six seasons in the NHL following the trade that brought Shea Weber to the Habs, splitting his time between the Nashville Predators and the New Jersey Devils.

There are two NHL trophies with Subban’s name engraved on them, The Norris Trophy (2012-13), and the King Clancy Memorial Trophy (2021-22).

I always cheered fir the player and his heart of gold


Had he played his entire career in Montreal he’d be even more beloved. He’d be 3rd all-time in points. And, an argument could be made had he not been traded to a very defensive-minded Predators team and a rebuilding Devils team he’d have a lot more points than he ended up with. I hated the trade at the time, learned to appreciate what Weber brought to the team, but I still wish there could have been a way to have kept him in the first place. I can’t say I was a huge fan of some of his antics off the ice, but on the ice, I loved what he brought to the franchise.
