Predators defenseman P.K. Subban made his first return to Centre Bell on Thursday, since being traded this past summer. The Montreal Canadiens saluted Subban with this video montage before the puck was dropped:

The Toronto native was brought to tears as chants of “P.K., P.K.” flooded the arena while he stood at the blue-line, soaking it all in.
“I wasn’t really sure how I was going to feel,” said Subban. “I played a lot of hockey games in this building.
It was awesome to see the fans recognize P.K., and I may have shed a few tears myself too.
