"P.K. Subban is a dynamic talent. But at the heart of what makes his story an Amazing Hockey Story is his dedication to giving back to the community, be it the Montreal Children's Hospital during his days with the Canadiens to his creation of P.K.'s Blueline Buddies in Nashville, a group that works on building positive connection between law enforcement and inner-city youths. In addition to his 2013 Norris Trophy win for top defenseman, he was awarded the 2017 Meritorious Service Cross in recognition of how his work "stands as an example of how professional athletes can positively change lives in their communities." On top of his talent and community-minded work, P.K. (short for Pernell-Karl) Subban comes from a fascinating family, where dedication to both hockey and education went hand-in hand. Both of P.K. Subban's younger brothers -- Jordan and Malcom -- have been drafted by the NHL. Author Lorna Schultz Nicholson brings years of hockey experience and will give young readers an up-close look at this true hockey superstar."--
