There’s now a little bit of fuss—just un petit peu—over how broadcasters should pronounce Canadiens star P.K. Subban’s first initials. Should a French-language station, airing to mostly Francophone viewers, pronounce the name of an Anglophone player the way they would, or the way he would?
Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban crashed a street hockey game in Montreal Sunday and took a few shots. Overlook the fact that Subban’s wearing sandals with jeans, and instead focus on him playing against an overmatched kid in pads.
NHL discipline czar Stephane Quintal confirmed that Habs defenseman P.K. Subban will not face any further punishment for his slash to the hands of Mark Stone in Montreal’s Game 1 win last night. Meanwhile the Senators announced that Stone, who returned to the game later in the period but skated irregularly, suffered a…
You knew Montreal-Ottawa was bound to have bad blood. You maybe didn’t expect it to spill just 28 minutes into the series.
Take five minutes to watch this video of a disguised P.K. Subban surprising some local kids with Habs gear, a day on the ice at the Canadiens' practice rink, and, eventually, himself. If you must, skip to 3:20 for the big reveal—and his refusal to go easy on the young skaters.
Because we are unrepentant P.K. Subban evangelists, here's Ben McGrath's profile of the Canadiens star in this week's New Yorker.
Sports Illustrated has finally put online last month's cover story on Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, written by Michael Farber. If you're a hockey fan, you'll want to read it. And if not, read it anyway—Subban is one of the best, most exciting, and most marketable young players hockey has to offer, and if the NHL…
The Canadiens defenseman sat down for an interview on Quebec radio talk show Tout le Monde en Parle, and presumably said a whole bunch of interesting things. But forget that—here's what he said about farting on goalies:
The NHL is holding its annual player tour, in which it drags many of its top stars to New York for days of interviews and appearances. ESPN's Craig Custance took advantage of the opportunity (Insider link) to ask players what they thought of their own unconventional analytics, aka fancystats.
There's something farcical about arbitration hearings, which, when you get down to it, feature a team's executives arguing in front of a player that he isn't very good. It's happening to the best defenseman in NHL as we speak.
Every hockey player should wear a microphone at all times. These wonderful exchanges—between P.K. Subban and Patrice Bergeron, and between Bergeron and referee Dan O'Halloran—show how your penalty (or no-call) sausage is made.
After Montreal's P.K. Subban scored to beat Boston in game one of their series, there were two inescapable talking points: That the word "nigger" was trending in Boston (this was quickly debunked) and there had been 17,000 tweets containing the slur and Subban's name. Would it change your impression if you found out…
When Corey Perry filled Jeff Carter's glove with water during a break last week, it was cute. Shawn Thornton's spraying of Montreal's P.K. Subban last night was more dickish than cheeky, and he paid for it.
Normally, if you allow Boston to score three goals, you're not going to win. They feature the single best defensive forward, blueliner, and netminder in the league, with everyone else taking their cues from a style designed to strangle and frustrate. That style worked just as it was supposed to last night, the Bruins…
We thought this one was going to be cut-and-dried. We thought Krys Barch said something hateful and racist and unacceptable to P.K. Subban, and the NHL would come down with all its disciplinary might to show that there's no place for racism in hockey, and then we'd all move on. Naturally, nothing's that easy.
Marty Turco signed a one-year contract with Chicago last summer and expected to start in net for the Blackhawks. But for much of the season, he's served as Corey Crawford's back-up and has gotten well-acquainted with the pine. He hasn't started a game since Feb. 11. So Turco's now looking for new sources of…
Talking about the Montreal Canadiens' benching of defenseman P.K. Subban, TSN's Darren Pang "suggested that the flamboyant Subban might try to emulate St. Louis's Alex Pietrangelo and do things on and off the ice 'the white way.'"
Got a highly touted prospect in the minors, and you want to show the world you're a fan? You could wear his jersey. Or, if you're in Quebec, you could break out the shoe polish and afro wigs.
