Karl Subban

Karl Subban at the Toronto Sports Summit 2018

Leadership speaker, educator and author of How We Did It, The Subban Plan for Success in Hockey, School and Life.

Karl Subban and his wife Maria were never raised to chase Canada’s hockey dream. It wasn’t until after Subban’s family moved from Jamaica to Sudbury, Ont., that he picked up his first hockey stick at 12 years old. How did this couple raise three NHL hockey players— P.K., Jordan and Malcolm? According to Subban, their success was never just about winning, but rather perseverance, teamwork, putting dreams into action and believing in one’s true potential. It’s a powerful message Subban delivers in keynotes and workshops to young people, athletes, coaches and parents alike.
