PK Subban is considered by some to be the best off the ice role model in the NHL and videos like this prove why.
Reddit user Hockey7676 posted that their son had been dealing with racist taunts this season, so the Nashville Predators defenceman sent him personal text message.

“As long as you’re still breathing in this world, you got to believe in yourself,” Subban says. “Let no body tell you what you can and can’t do, especially if it’s because of the colour of your skin.”
The comments on Reddit have been extremely positive.
“PK’s just taking a minute out of his day to do this, but can you think of the lifelong impact it’ll have on the kid? Made me smile. Sometimes all it takes is a brief act of kindness to make a huge impact,” user laowarriah wrote.
“This is awesome. I hope your son takes this to heart and doesn’t let racism stop him from doing what he loves,” Grumpyfinn commented.
Yet another reason PK Subban is a superstar.
