P.K Subban Retires

P.K. Subban, a Norris Trophy winner and Olympic champion, has called it a career after 13 years.

P.K. Subban has decided to call it a career at the age of 33. 


Drafted 43rd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 2007, Subban went on to play 834 games with Montreal, Nashville and New Jersey, recording 467 points and another 62 in 96 playoff games. He led all defensemen in scoring with 38 points in 2012-13 en route to winning the Norris Trophy and was a finalist two other times, in 2015 and 2018.


Subban won gold with Canada as part of the dominant 2014 Olympic team and was named to the NHL's first all-star team the following year. Subban's best seasons were with the Canadiens, but was moved in a shocking deal that sent him to Nashville in exchange for Shea Weber. 

Subban helped the Predators make the Stanley Cup in 2017, losing to the Pittsburgh Penguins, but then followed it up with an impressive 59-point campaign the following year. 

Subban was later traded to New Jersey in 2019-20, and his career started to tail off from there. His $9-million AAV deal made him a tough trade target, and his performance didn't warrant the cost at that point. Still, Subban's accomplishments speak for themselves.

Could not find a team stupid enough to offer him a contract, so he hangs it up...


Solid career, Very Charasmatic, energetic player, but (imo) over rated defensively.


Spectacular but was a defensive liability and too much of a distraction. His play didn't aged well. On the other side, at $1M, I'd pick him anytime.


So what about the winner of the Weber-Subban trade? Both went once to the SC final and retired more or less at the same moment. Let's call it a tie.

I still think he had enough in the tank to help someone on their bottom pair but his back was ruined and his ego likely would not allow him to sign for at or near the league minimum. Norris winner, finalist two other times, at his best he was quite good, other than the famous fued with Gallagher in Montreal he seems to be loved by nearly all of his teammates, the kids in Jersey loved him. I dont see him as a HOFer but retiring young may help his chances slightly as he will be remembered more for the player he was in his prime rather than 3, 4 years of 15 minutes a night in a much lesser role. 'Slew foot Subban' was if nothing else certainly entertaining.
