The Nashville Predators will honor former defenseman P.K. Subban on Monday, Feb. 13, as the team hosts the Arizona Coyotes at Bridgestone Arena.

Subban, who played three of his 13 seasons with the Preds, announced his retirement from the NHL last September.

The three-time NHL All-Star defenseman was a prominent figure both on and off the ice. During his time in Nashville, Subban launched P.K.’s Blueline Buddies Program, an initiative to bring together youth and law enforcement. During every Predators home game, Subban brought together a member of the Metro Nashville Police Department with a big and little from Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Subban was an integral part of the Preds’ 2017 Stanley Cup Final run, the 2018 Presidents’ Trophy and back-to-back Central Division titles. He had 130 points (35 goals, 95 assists) in 211 regular-season games played with the Preds, and 24 points (7 goals, 17 assists) in 41 Stanley Cup Playoff games before he was traded to the New Jersey Devils in 2019.

The first 7,600 fans in attendance to the Feb. 13 game will get a commemorative P.K. Subban poster.

The Preds will also celebrate Subban throughout the day:
