PK Subban can’t take a break from hockey even when he’s supposed to.
Wednesday night, on the first day of the Nashville Predators’ bye week, the Norris Trophy winning defenseman was spotted sitting along the glass of the Leafs-Senators game.
Bye week or not, @PKSubban1 takes no break from hockey. pic.twitter.com/oG8E8CiLUX

Yup, that’s right. Subban, who makes $9 million a year, flew home to Toronto — not a tropical resort — and watched a hockey game.

Subban isn’t even technically a Leafs fan.
As a kid, Subban grew up rooting for the Montreal Canadiens but idolized Leafs forward Doug Gilmour. During his time with the Habs, Subban admitted he was intrigued about the idea of playing for his hometown team someday in a 2014 interview with the National Post,.
Staying on the basketball theme: With LeBron James returning to Cleveland this summer, have you ever considered going home to play in Toronto?
PK: Um, I’d be wrong to say that I haven’t thought about it. But one thing’s for sure: Montreal’s a great place to play. The start to a tremendous career – hopefully – has been great in Montreal, when you think that we’ve put together a team that’s been in the playoffs in three out of four years. I’ve been a big part of it. I’ve had individual success as well as team success. You look at last year, what we accomplished. And really, just setting the stage for a legacy there that, possibly, some players will never have in any organization. So I look at that first. But definitely, to think that, at some point, you may have the opportunity to play in your hometown? Yeah, it’s unique. But I’m not in a position to elaborate any more on that. All I can say is that I’ve heard a lot about it, I’ve thought about it – but I’m very happy where I am right now, and they’ve treated me so well.”
Hockey was only part of Subban’s day however. The Predators defenseman also joined Toronto native Drake at the music mogul’s new restaurant Pick 6ix.
Opening of @pick6ixto – Toronto's finest. Congrats @champagnepapi @chefantoniopark @chubbsview #PKApproved #Family
