Seeing the “Atrium P.K. Subban” lettering as he walked in the hospital gave him goosebumps.
P.K. Subban has made what Montreal Children’s Hospital is calling “the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history.”
The star defenceman for the Montreal Canadiens will donate $10 million — minimum — to the hospital.
Subban, who called Montreal his second home Wednesday, is also making a commitment to raise funds for the hospital for seven years as a spokesman.
As a thank-you, the hospital named its three-story atrium in honor of Subban.
