From the Canadian Press via TSN:
Visiting earthquake-ravaged Haiti has been an eye-opening experience for the Montreal Canadiens P.K. Subban.
The rookie defenceman and former NHL enforcer Georges Laraque spent three days this week meeting patients and their families at Grace Children’s Hospital in Port-au-Prince and getting a first-hand look at the effects of the Jan. 12, 2010 quake that killed an estimated 300,000 and left more than one million homeless.
“I’ve never been to a poor country, I’ve never even been anywhere in the Caribbean, so this is a pretty different experience,” Subban said in a telephone interview this week. “I don’t know if it changes you, but it definitely affects you as a person.”
