P.K. Subban retires
P.K. Subban retires from the NHL. After 13 seasons, a Norris trophy win and an Olympic gold medal, he has decided to hang up the skates.

In a surprise announcement today, P.K. Subban retires from the National Hockey League. At 33 with a Norris Trophy and Olympic Gold Medal he has hung up his hockey skates.

The one accomplishment that is lacking in his successful career is no Stanley Cup ring. At some point in the future will he decide to come out of retirement and try to get another shot to have his name on the Stanley Cup?

Subban is coming off an eight-year, $72 million deal with an average annual value of $9 million. There is no need to feel sad for P.K., if he saved his money wisely he will be fine. Plus, he likely has a broadcasting career ahead of him.

To an amazing league that gave me the opportunity to compete at the highest level with some of the best athletes in the world. The NHL also provided me with a platform that allowed me to give back thru my charities. A sincere thank you to the many players that I either played with or competed against who brought out the best in me. A heartfelt appreciation to the Montreal Canadians, Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils for each representing organizations with class and integrity.

Why did P.K. Subban retire?

NHL trade rumors had swirled all swimmer long that three teams were interested in signing P.K. Subban to a contract but word is he only wanted to play with a Stanley Cup contender and when he could not find a taker, he retired.

Subban is not the player he once was at 25 years of age and with his desire to be a difference maker in the NHL that he longer possesses, he felt that now was the right time to retire.

He has a very outgoing personality with him stating, “I look forward to the road ahead, and the many exciting opportunities to come. I’m excited to share what those are with you all when the time comes!”

Will he be doing TV work for TSN or Sportsnet? Maybe another gig not related to hockey? If I were a betting person, you will likely see him on TV this fall.
