#3 – P.K. Subban
P.K. Subban had a great week this week for the Nashville Predators. Him and Alexei Emelin played great defensively this week, as they had a tough time in trying to slow down Connor McDavid. McDavid is one of the best, if not the best player right now in all of hockey, so being able to slow him down was huge for the Predators and their defensive unit.
Subban was able to get two early goals in the Canucks game, to help the Predators establish their offensive game. Subban grabbed an assist in Josi’s power play goal late in the 2nd period in the game against the Oilers. He grabbed another assist on Fiala’s goal in the game against the Flames on Saturday night.
Subban had to step up for the Predators in the first few months of the season, as he had to step up into a bigger role with Ryan Ellis out. He and Emelin have played great defensively as of recently, as Subban has also produced offensively as well.
Subban is 4th on the team right now in points, as he has 22 points on the year. He has six goals, with 16 assists. The defensemen are putting up good numbers for the Predators so far this season, as Josi and Ekholm have 21 points each.
