Former Nashville Predator defenseman P.K. Subban has announced his retirement from the NHL via social media after 13 seasons.

The 33-year-old has accumulated 467 points throughout his career (115 goals, 352 assists) in 834 games for the Montreal Canadiens, Predators and New Jersey Devils, as well as 62 points (18 goals, 44 assists) in 96 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

He won the 2013 Norris Trophy as he was voted best defenseman in the NHL and is a three-time NHL All-Star, making the First Team twice (2012-13, 2014-15) and the Second Team once (2017-18). He also won the 2022 King Clancy Memorial Trophy, awarded to the NHL player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice, and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.

“To all my fans that have supported me and continue to support me since the first day I stepped on the ice, thank you!” Subban shared in a statement on social media. “You picked me up when I was down, supported me through tough times and had my back through it all!”

Subban, chosen by the Canadiens in the second round (No. 43) of the 2007 NHL Draft, was traded to the Predators for defenseman Shea Weber in 2016. He had 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in 22 playoff games to help Nashville advance to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final.

Subban played one more season for the Predators before he was traded to the Devils in 2019, and had 22 points (five goals, 17 assists) in 77 games for the Devils last season.
