This is hands down my favorite PK moment from his time in Nashville.
This is the kind of stuff that separates PK from the rest of the personalities of the NHL. He doesn’t just talk to get his name in the news. Instead, he uses his voice to bring awareness to his charities and to the good he is doing in the community.
He consistently goes out of his way to do something fantastic for others in any way possible. Here, he just handed out tickets to anyone who would talk to him. Then to top it off, he redoes an entire living room to make an underprivileged Nashville family’s Christmas special.
As a whole, hockey players are a quiet group that doesn’t rock the boat much. They don’t say much, and oftentimes there isn’t much interaction with the community and the fans. PK is the exact opposite of that, one reason why he will be missed.
Yes, PK is a hockey player and that is his job. However, the reason he is such a household name is because of his personality and because of the good he does for those around him. Yes, he’s an outstanding defenseman, but the personable and positive things he did in Nashville is what was my favorite thing to see.
