P.K. Subban spent over seven years in Montreal with the Canadiens becoming a super star in a city that lives and breathes hockey. This past offseason the veteran defenseman and fan favorite was traded to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber in what I can only imagine was an emotional loss for the city of Montreal. Tonight we got a glimpse at just how emotional Subban’s exit may have been because in his return to Montreal the former Hab couldn’t hold back the tears as a video tribute to him was played.
Fuck… it got me feeling nostalgic and I’m not even a Canadiens fan.
Have a look because I’ve got something in my eye…
