ESPN has made an announcement that P.K. Subban will be joining the studio once again, as an Analyst for the remainder of the playoffs. Subban will be on "The Point" as of yesterday beginning at 5pm.


During the 2020-2021 season, Subban was also brought on as a studio analyst, with his first appearance during the playoffs on SportsCenter.

Subban debuted last year on June 9th, to add commentary during the competitive 2021 playoffs.


ESPN has increased its presence in hockey after agreeing to a seven-year, $2.8 billion deal with the league. The broadcaster has already added Kevin Weekes, Ray Ferraro, Brian Boucher and Leah Hextall to various roles, per Andrew Marchand of the New York Post. - Bleacher

There is no speculation currently about Subban's future with the New Jersey Devils' organization, but on May 2nd, he became a UFA. With a 22-point season behind him and with him out prior to his UFA status it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Subban made a name for himself with the Montreal Canadiens from 2009-16, winning the Norris Trophy as the NHL's best defenseman during the 2012-13 campaign. He was then traded to the Nashville Predators, where he spent three seasons before joining the Devils.

Subban also made a name for himself, being a net positive off the ice in Montreal as well:

In Sep. 2015, through the foundation, he made a financial commitment of $10 million over seven years to Montreal Children's Hospital, which in response, named the atrium after him. The hospital called the donation «the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history.» (from 'The Making of P.K April 2, 2022)
