He may have spent this season playing in the playoffs for the Montreal Canadiens, and most of the regular season with the Hamilton Bulldogs, but P.K. Subban is making a public splash back home in and around Toronto.
Two Sundays back, the charismatic defenceman guest hosted on the nationally syndicated “Live From Wayne Gretzky’s” radio program in downtown Toronto. You can see a segment from the show on Gretzky.com’s video player.
On Tuesday, he will be the drawmaster for this Saturday’s Pepsi North America Cup race at Mohawk Racetrack.
With his popularity in the rise, he has also been tentatively added to the Joe Carter and Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament in Maple (just north of Toronto) on Wednesday.
Not a bad appearance resume for a kid with just two games of regular season experience in the NHL.
The 21-year-old Subban was born in the Rexdale area of Toronto and grew up across town in Scarborough.
