Former Montreal Canadiens defender BK Suban has decided to suspend his skates.
The right-back, who was an unrestricted free agent, made the announcement on his social media on Tuesday.
“It’s the end of a chapter for me and after 13 years in the National League [LNH]I have made the decision to step down,” Sabban wrote.
Ontarian was selected in the second round (43rd) by the Canadians in the 2007 draft. He began his career at the Pittman circuit three years later, in the final moments of the 2009-2010 campaign. He also contributed to CH’s success in the playoffs that season, amassing eight points in 14 games.
Listen to journalist Louis Antoine Lemer’s summary on Richard Martineau’s microphone on QUB Radio:
Subban played a total of 434 games over the course of seven seasons with Habs. In June 2016, he was traded to the Nashville Predators for defenseman Shea Weber.
The 33-year-old played three campaigns with the Tennessee Club and then wore the colors of the New Jersey Devils for several seasons. In 834 NHL games, Suban hit the goal 115 times and provided 352 assists for 467 points.
“I’ve never seen myself as ‘just a hockey player.'” I’ve always considered myself someone who plays hockey, Suban wrote in his ad. célébrer tous mes buts avec émotion et jouer tous les matchs comme si quelqu’un avait payé pour me voir jouer pour la for the first time.”
