Roenick: ‘We need more people in hockey’ like Subban

Ex NHL star Jeremy Roenick joins the Andrew Walker Show to discuss how P.K Subban enjoys stealing the limelight off the ice, but still brings it on game days.

P.K. Subban has made the most of his first trip to the Stanley Cup Final.

Not only has the Nashville Predators defenceman made an impact through four games against the Pittsburgh Penguins on the ice, the 28-year-old has been in the spotlight off of it as his team battles for its first-ever Cup victory.

While Subban sometimes rubs people the wrong way, former NHLer and NBC analyst Jeremy Roenick is of the belief the NHL needs more players like No. 76.

“We need more people in hockey that have that electric personality. That aren’t afraid to speak his mind, that aren’t afraid to make challenges, that aren’t afraid to banter back and forth and give people that excitement and that entertainment on and off the ice,” Roenick said on The Andrew Walker Show Wednesday on Sportsnet 590 The Fan. “I think he’s great for the game, I think he’s a spectacular competitor, and obviously he’s one of the top defencemen in the National Hockey League.”

However, Roenick says Subban has to be careful to not go overboard. Listen to the full interview below for more.
