SUBBAN EXPLAINS WHY HE INVOLVED CAREY PRICE IN HIS TRIBUTE NIGHT (VIDEO)

Earlier this month, the Montreal Canadiens honoured former defenceman P.K. Subban before a game against the Nashville Predators. Subban came out onto the ice and spoke to the crowd about his time with the Canadiens and how thankful he was to be apart of the organization. Just before wrapping up, Subban brought out Carey Price to do their iconic 'triple low-five' which was a staple after a win.

While on 'Tim & Friends' on Tuesday, Subban explained why he included Price in his tribute night.

"That night was so special because I got to spend it with them and I got to share it with a guy who, when I came into the league, you know, Pricey was on the bench, Halak was playing. Every day when we had practice during the playoffs, I admired the way that he carried himself. He was a team guy, he put the team first, he kept a positive attitude. I remember, I'm not going to name names, but there were some other guys that maybe were in and out of the lineup, who weren't feeling great about it and he challenged them to put the team first. That's what I respect mostly about Pricey, is that I knew he always wanted to win and I think we shared that together. Everything we did, was to try to win. We wanted to win so bad and to share that moment with him and everything that he's gone through, he deserves just as much to be apart of that moment with me because he was a huge part of it and I love that guy. Not as a hockey player, everybody sees him and what he does on the ice, but as a person, Pricey is second to no one. As a teammate, second to no one. So, for him, I hope that he enjoyed the fact that we were able to do that together and that I wanted to have him out there. Kudos to the organization for teeing that up and allowing us to do that because I think it was a great moment and reflecting our time there." Subban said.

Subban and Price spent parts of seven seasons as teammates in Montreal and were also on Team Canada together at the 2014 Winter Olympics, bringing home the gold medal. After parts of 13 NHL seasons, Subban announced his retirement from hockey in September.
