New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban is teaming up with the NHL to deliver some lighter content during the league's hiatus.

Subban announced Thursday that he'll be hosting a trivia game show featuring players, celebrities, and fans, according to NHL.com's Mike Morreale.

"I'm sure it could be some fun stuff and it's also great to create some content that brings some joy to people, gives people some things to laugh about because there's a lot of things to frown about," Subban said.

"I'm happy that the league is making an initiative to put smiles on people's faces and give fans some content to look forward to and have some fun with. Hopefully, this game show can do that, and I'm looking forward to it."

This isn't the first time Subban has been the face of an NHL show. In 2019, the defender hosted "P.K. Subban's All-Star Special" during All-Star Weekend.

While announcing the game show on Thursday, Subban also took a moment to commend those that are working in health care during the coronavirus pandemic.

"You've got to give crazy props to the doctors and nurses and all the people that have put in crazy hours, that have those masks on, that are doing work all day. … I couldn't imagine having one of those on for a 14-, 15-, 16-hour shift," he said.

"Shout out to all those people that are putting in the time and continuing to make us healthy and safe. It's just tough. It's just a tough time. It's crazy."

The NHL is hoping to launch the trivia game show in the next two weeks.
