When you think of PK Subban, what comes to mind more often than not is his killer ability on the power play. His distance shooting is the stuff legends are made of. Not surprisingly, he led the team in power play points last season with 25.
Subban is also one of the most durable players in the NHL, leading the team in games played last season with 82.
PK Subban’s popularity as a player has skyrocketed since he was dealt to the Nashville Predators in 2016. His style of play has endeared him to Smashville fanatics, and he is easily one of the most recognizable players on the ice at any given time. Joining a franchise that has been trending upward the way the Predators have certainly helped his image, but his performance speaks for itself. A scoring defenceman who is clutch on the power play? That will get you on the cover of NHL ’19.

Any way you slice it, the trade for PK Subban has been one heck of a slam dunk for both Subban and the Nashville Predators. This is just what happens when you put a young rising superstar on the hottest franchise in professional sports.
