*Calling all hockey fans!
P.K. Subban will be appearing on “Road To the NHL Winter Classic,” tonight on EPIX.
The weekly series, consisting of four one-hour episodes, focuses on the heated rivalry between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens. Both teams are preparing for the 2016 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on New Year’s Day.
Subban, plays defense and is an alternate captain for the Canadiens. He also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. The 26 year old loves fashion.
“I’m not a diva, I just like to look good,” explained the gold medalist. “I spend a lot of time here (shop), during the season I come in and go through different materials and different styles of suits that we want to wear and outfits that we have planned for the season. It’s all about wearing clothing with confidence. You have to like it, you have to feel comfortable in it. I always like to take advantage of the platforms we are given like, Winter Classic and the NHL Awards, this is a great time to share with people and show my passion for fashion. For the Winter Classic, it’s a little more special because it’s the inspiration of Jean Beliveau and these great players and legends that played before you. I got something pretty sick coming for the classic…legendary!”
Earlier this year, the Canadian born Subban pledged to donate $10 million to the Montreal Children’s Hospital, over seven years.
