Karl Subban has written a book called “How We Did It” and will be at the Chapters in Sudbury on Thursday November 30th at 7pm to sign copies of his book.


Mr. Subban moved to Sudbury from Jamaica when he was only 12 and he’d never seen or played a game of hockey in his life. Of course that didn’t last long and he fell in love with the game and the Montreal Canadiens.


Subban went to teachers college in Thunder Bay and eventually taught and was a Principal in some tough Toronto neighborhoods. He and his wife have 2 daughters and 3 sons,  P.K. started in Montreal and is now with Nashville while Malcolm and Jordan were both drafted by NHL teams. Jordan was drafted by Vancouver in the 4th round of the 2013 draft. Malcolm was chosen by Boston in the 1st round of the 2012 NHL draft


Subban’s book details his journey from Jamaica to Sudbury to Lakehead to his eventual career as an educator, while keeping a clear focus on the book’s subtitle “The Subban plan for success in hockey, school, and life.”


Though he is perhaps best-known as a hockey dad, Subban says that this book is for everyone who is involved in the lives of children in one way or another.


“It’s for parents, teachers, coaches, anyone who works with children or has children really,” he said. “A big word that the book focuses on is ‘potential’ and how all children have potential in them that’s waiting to be unlocked,” said Subban.
