P.K. Subban made a good first impression with his positive attitude when the Canadiens drafted him in the second round last month, and the prospect has kept on smiling, even through the grind of a week-long prospect camp that ended Sunday.
Subban said he expected the competition on the ice, but once the skates come off, he was surprised at how quickly the group came together.
“It’s intense, but the good thing is that we’re a family in the room. It’s unbelievable how close we’ve become in the last few days,” he said.
But despite the friendliness away from the rink, it’s all business on the ice.
“You respect them, but you look at your own situation and say: ‘Listen, I’m here to compete, too, and I want to make an impression on everybody, too.’ You just go out there and compete hard. That’s all you can really do,” he said.
