The National Hockey League has seen a resurgence of Black players in recent times and Montreal Canadiens’ defenseman P.K. Subban is emerging as one of the game’s brightest stars. Beyond Subban’s athletic ability, he’s also known as one of the sport’s most charitable athletes after his record donation to a Canadian children’s hospital.
At 6-feet and 210 pounds, Subban, 26, casts a formidable figure on the ice. Off the ice, Subban has become celebrated in Montreal and across Canada for his charity wok and the donation to Montreal Children’s Hospital. In 2015, Subban gave the hospital $10 million dollars. It was confirmed by the facility as the largest donation ever made by a Canadian athlete. The hospital named its atrium after Subban, a moment the player said gave him goosebumps.
