The Most Important Player In The NHL Could Be P.K. Subban

from Nick Kelly of the Tampa Bay Times,

This hockey star who holds the title of favorite player for many fans is on his way back to Tampa where he served as an All-Star captain last winter as Nashville faces the Lightning on Thursday.

In addition to favorite, important is another fitting adjective for Subban. His charismatic personality, elite hockey ability and the representation he provides for black athletes who aspire to play a predominantly white sport make Subban one of the NHL's most important players.

In fact, he could very well be the most important player in a league that constantly strives to grow and reach new audiences.

"He is upbeat, he's fun, he's easy to gravitate to," Nashville general manager David Poile said. "He's got that it. However you want to describe what 'it' is, he's got it."

It all starts with Subban's personality, primarily made up of charisma and compassion.
