PK Subban announces retirement after 13 NHL seasons

PK Subban has announced his retirement.

The former Norris Trophy winner as the NHL’s top defenseman shared the news on his social networks Tuesday morning.

The 33-year-old Toronto native played 13 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils.

Subban has 115 goals and 467 points in 824 regular season games. The 43rd pick in the 2007 NHL Draft added 62 points (18 goals, 44 assists) in 96 postseason games.

The brilliant defender won the Norris in 2013 with the Canadiens. And after signing an eight-year, US$72 million contract with the club, he donated $10 million to the Montreal Children’s Hospital in 2016.

Subban, who was an unrestricted free agent this summer, has been on TV in the past and hinted at new opportunities in his retirement position.

“I never looked at myself and felt like I was ‘just a hockey player,'” he wrote. “I always thought of myself as a person who played hockey.

“Having that perspective allowed me to enjoy every shift like it was my last, celebrate every goal with emotion and play every game like someone was paying to watch me who had never seen me. play before.”
