P.K. finally gets his ‘coveted’ pin


P.K. Subban accepts his pin – wonder whether it’s on eBay yet? – on Monday from Dave Stubbs of The Gazette and hockeyinsideout.com

Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban called it “awesome,” which might have been a generous thing to say. But the hugely popular rookie rearguard was a good sport Monday after practice in accepting from Dave Stubbs the “coveted” hat trick pin to recognize his first NHL three-goal game.

Here’s the background on the pin, which was made in Montreal and is older than Subban himself.

(Yes, the plan had been for Subban’s good friend, goalie Carey Price, to play Steven Spielberg. But for a whole variety of reasons, Price wasn’t available to heckle Subban from behind the camera.)

    Congrats PK!

    This was a great side-story this year, Dave. It’s one of few “feel good” moments we’ve had in the new year. Congrats PK! Don’t sell the pin,.. pass it on.

    Awwwww … PK is my favorite player!!!

  6. 1010 says:

    My only concern with the pin presentation is this: Did PK show the appropriate amount of respect upon receiving the coveted pin?
    And if not, will Cherry discuss this on coaches corner on Saturday?

    GO HABS…

    Great to see P.K. accept the pin so graciously. Too bad Price wasn’t there to heckle. That would have been fun. And from the video, we can see that Subban dresses to the right.

    Awesome the pin finally finds a home. I’m lost on how anyone can hate this guy

  9. Rainrocket16 says:

    Great for P.K.!!! Other news, Recchi is stating that Tim Thomas should not only recieve the Vezina but he should also recieve the Hart! Really!!?

  10. notbigbird says:

    That was really cute. Great idea by Stubbs. Worthy recipient in PK.

    All of ties put together aren’t worth $50. In fact, they’re all so old that they aren’t worth 5 cents.

    • habstrinifan says:

      I thought that was funny too! It was an expensive tie he said.. worth about $50.00. I dont think I ever bought a pants worth $50.00 much less a tie.

      P.K P.K Man he’s good for the HABS.

  11. SeriousFan09 says:

    Gotta love PK, bold prediction, he ties/breaks Guy Lapointe’s goals as a rookie record of 15 by Game 82.

    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  12. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Look at the arms on that kid! And to think there are idiots posting on TSN that he’s scared to fight people. Ya, I’m sure he’s real scared, he’s freakin huge! Probably why Richards was so scared to actually drop the mitts with him.

  13. Danno says:

    I wonder if it PK will hand it down to the next hat trick winner on the team or if it will stay with him?


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  14. stnbog says:

    My son was on the ice with PK at Canadiens hockey camp 2 years ago.
    PK shattered the glass showing the kids his slap shot. The kids went wild. Great for the kids and future. PK, pass the pin on when we get another HAT TRICK.

  15. samTHEman says:

    3 points away from hitting the 40 point plateau. 3 games to do it. Cmon PK!!

  16. C_Hand says:

    Yes PK!!! You will never forget the day you were awarded the “coveted” hat-trick pin… 😉

  17. J.J. of Turku says:

    Amazing. This guy is a really positive person. Nice to watch an athlete who smiles and speaks fluently.

    Thanks for the great post to mr Stubbs.


  18. punkster says:

    Good work Mr. Stubbs. A worthy recipient.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  19. HabsFanInTampa says:

  20. G-Man says:

  21. Sal says:

  22. Lokee says:

  23. Propwash says:

    You the man P.K!

  24. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    PK’s a stud D-Man.

  25. malmn says:

    That’s some great stuff! I’m happy that someone won it this year. lol!

  26. Danno says:

    PK is a rare and wonderful person. A gentleman and a superstar. Keep doing things your way PK. We love you.

    PS – I don’t own any $50 ties. Mine are all cheaper than that.

    Bravo PK!
