VIDEO: P.K. Subban crashes street hockey game, faces 8-year-old goalie
P.K. Subban gave a group of local residents some lasting memories on Sunday night.
The Montreal Canadiens defenseman saw a group of kids playing street hockey and decided to join in, taking on 8-year-old goaltender Jack Fraser.
After allowing a couple of goals, Fraser settled in and held his own.
“He was blown away but was trying to act cool and wanted to stop all of P.K.’s shots,” his father, Aaron Fraser, told BuzzFeed. “You could see him get discouraged when the first two went in but then he made a few saves and you could see his confidence swell.”
Subban has a knack for surprises, but there was no disguise this time for the 2013 Norris Trophy winner, who pulled up in his SUV after dining in the Montreal suburb of Westmount.
"This says everything about what kind of a guy P.K. is,” the elder Fraser said. “P.K. is not only the most talented defenseman in hockey, he also does it with a smile on his face. The kids can sense it and they eat it up!”
Subban's surprise street hockey shift lasted about five minutes, but it was an experience these Montrealers won't soon forget.
