Breaking: PK Subban sets an example for anthem protesters

pk subban anthem protestors

Nashvile Predators' PK Subban told hockey fans he'd never kneel during the national anthem. It's clear the anthem protests from millionaire athletes have divided people everywhere, and achieved nothing.

PK Subban aims to end the division with a new program, according to Brooks Bratten.

During every Nashville Predators home game this season, Subban will host his new P.K.'s Blueline Buddies program, bringing together a member of the Metro Nashville Police Department and their guest with a mentor or representative from a local organization and an underprivileged youth. 
Subban takes care of the game tickets, dinner and meets with the group prior to and after the game to lift their spirits and give them a few hours to forget about everything on the outside.

Subban mentioned how it's really important for athletes to be role models in terms of building bridges and being part of the solution to social issues.

I think it's important for athletes to set a tone in a way that we're looking to build bridges. That doesn't take away from anybody's right to do what they want to do or how they want to exercise their rights as an American citizen, but I think it's really important for us to be role models in terms of building bridges and being a part of the solution to social issues and different things that go on in our community.
Our law enforcement, these are people that leave their houses and may not come back home at the end of the night. That's the job that they have, so to make them feel good, and to also be able to help underprivileged youth that don't get an opportunity like everyone else, that come from broken homes, it's a win-win.

PK Subban sets an example for all athletes how to conduct themselves. Not only did Subban donate $10M to a Montreal Children's Hospital, but also he has started this Blueline Buddies program in Nashville. You're a class act Mr. Subban!
