It was always going to be emotional, not only for Canadiens fans but also for Subban himself. Those emotions came to the forefront during Montreal’s heartwarming tribute to Subban’s seven seasons with the club before the start of the game.
The video features highlights of Subban’s time in a Canadiens’ sweater, and also his endless philanthropy to the city of Montreal.
It was enough to make Subban visibly emotional and in tears by the time the tribute was done.
A well-deserved tribute and a standing ovation. Not a dry eye over here.
