Montreal Canadiens’ P.K. Subban donates $10M to local hospital

-

An NHL defenseman, who signed an eight-year contract extension worth $72 million, distributed a fraction from that inking and used it towards the Montreal General Children’s Hospital.

Although known for his inappropriate penalty that left Mark Stone with a broken wrist a couple years back, Habs hockey player P.K. Subban donated $10 million to be used over the course of seven years in what the hospital described as “the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history.”

To honor the do-gooder, the hospital enshrined Subban’s name into an atrium, which will also feature a fund called P.K.’s Helping Hands to financially assist families that struggle with a child’s illness.

During a press conference, P.K. Subban issued a statement, tying his donation in with his affinity for the city:

“Montreal has become my second home. My love for Montreal is why I wanted to make a significant contribution to this city and this province.”
