Subban Brothers and Hospitals Have Been a Match This Year
The first thing to know is that when a hockey player goes down and stays down, it's serious.
In spite of that, they're hockey players. Even serious is a relative term.
But trips to the hospital that start with a stretcher ride confirms that serious is, in fact, serious.
So when Montréal defenseman
Darth Vader PK Subban found himself in a risky situation, it got serious:
Fortunately, his stay was brief, but he'll only be a spectator on Sat 12 Mar when the Minnesota Wild come to town.
With the specter of what can happen with knees to the head or being driven head-first into the boards, this was still too close for comfort.
And PK was the lucky Subban.
On Sat 6 Feb, younger bro Malcolm took a puck to the larynx during warmups before the Bruins' AHL affiliate in Providence took on the Portland Pirates in Maine. He wound up in surgery and is out indefinitely.
As a goalie, he's not only a hockey player, he's a crazy hockey player. So he'll be back soon enough, doing what he can to enhance the family reputation.
Just as long as he keeps his neck guard on.
