P.K. Subban Cares

from Joe Rexrode of The Tennessean,

So Subban is buying tickets to every home game for a different officer and kid, and their guests. They’re eating a deluxe buffet at the Patron Platinum Club in Bridgestone Arena and then watching the game from really good seats. They’re seeing Subban before and after the game and getting autographs from other players. But mostly this is about them....

“I’m all for athletes and people in general exercising their rights,” Subban said of the protests. “I’m making an effort to build a bridge. Trying to create positive energy between police officers that leave their houses every day, leave their families every day and don’t know if they’re going to come back, and our underprivileged youth.

“I know that growing up I had a lot of friends in my community that didn’t like law enforcement. And a lot of that has to do with what they’ve seen. I think this hopefully helps law enforcement feel they’re appreciated. It’s a delicate topic, but I think everything with this program is positive.”

He’s so extroverted he can wear me out sometimes, but not only is his heart in the right place,
his maturity, judgement and sense of priorities in how he backs it up are really impressive.

Subban is a special athlete and person and I hope the Preds enjoy more deep playoff runs
in part because of him.
