P.K. Subban is an African-American hockey player in the National Hockey League. He is a two-time Norris Trophy candidate and one-time winner. Subban is a former member of the Montreal Canadiens, and now currently plays for the Nashville Predators.
Subban was drafted in the second round of the 2007 draft. The 28-year old is now in his eighth season in the NHL, and last year helped lead the Predators to their first Stanley Cup Final appearance in franchise history. So now that he’s been in the league a decade-long, just how much is one of the NHL’s most highly-profiled players worth?
P.K. Subban Net Worth As Of 2019: $25 Million
P.K. Subban, the defensemen for the Nashville Predators, has a reported net worth of $25 million.
P.K. Subban was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on May 13, 1989. He was the middle child of five children — Nastassia, Natasha, Jordan, and Malcolm — born to his parents, Maria and Karl.
When he was a year old, his sisters first taught him to skate. By the age of four, P.K. started playing hockey. In his second year in organized hockey, Subban was a member of the Etobicoke Bulldogs, where he was an All-Star.
By age 10, Subban was playing for two of the most sought-after junior-bantam teams in Canada in the North York Rangers, and later the Mississauga Reps AAA club.
After playing a few more seasons of youth hockey, at the age of 16, P.K. Subban made his way to the Ontario Hockey League to play for the Belleville Bulls.
In his two seasons in Belleville, he would record 68 points and help the Bulls make the postseason, while also attracting NHL scouts in the process.
On June 23, 2007, the Montreal Canadiens selected Subban 43rd overall in the second round of the NHL Entry Draft.
After being drafted, Subban would return to Belleville for two more seasons where he would light up the stat sheet and begin to show his infectious personality. Subban scored 46 points in 58 games in 2007-08 and helped the Bulls reach the J. Ross Robertson Cup Finals.
His final year in the OHL, then 19-year old P.K. would dominate the league tallying 76 points in 56 games, leading Belleville to the playoffs, eventually losing in the semi-finals of the OHL playoffs.
After signing his three-year entry contract with Montreal, Subban went to the AHL to play for the Canadiens farm club, the Hamilton Bulldogs. He would be selected to play in the AHL All-Star Game. Subban would also win gold for Team Canada in the World Junior Championships in 2010.
Subban made his NHL debut on February 12, 2010, against the Philadelphia Flyers. That evening, he would register his first career point with an assist.
In the 2011-12 campaign — his first full NHL season — Subban totaled 36 points. The year after, he would be awarded the James Norris Memorial Trophy as the league’s best defensemen. That 2012-13 season was also the first of two NHL First All-Star team nominations for the Toronto native.
In the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Subban yet again won gold for Canada. During the 2014-15 season, Subban would record a career-high 60 points. He would finish third in the Norris voting.
On September 15, 2016, P.K. showed his passion and love for the city of Montreal by pledging $10 million over a seven-year span to the Montreal Children’s Hospital. In the hospital, visible from three floors reads the words, “Atrium P.K. Subban.” His donation also helped create the fund, “P.K.’s Helping Hands,” which provides financial assistance to families with kids who are ill.
Subban would be traded to Nashville after the 2015-16 season. The move came as a surprise to him and many around the entire league. But in his new city, Subban immediately made an impact. Subban’s play and personality gave the Predators a whole new look and helped the club reach their first Stanley Cup in 2017, where they fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins in six games.
P.K. Subban and his production company Peek Productions has recently collaborated with NBC Sports Group for the series “The P.K. Project” that already is streaming on NBC Sports’ website, app and YouTube channel.
