P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens is one of the best young hockey players in the world, and part of the new generation of NHL stars. Just 23, he is favoured to win this year’s James Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenceman. Fast and flashy, Subban is not averse to taking risks on the ice, often jumping up into a rush for a shot on goal. He is the first Montreal Canadiens rookie defenceman ever to record a hat trick.
