MONTREAL – He could be considered the ultimate hockey dad.
Here are five things you might not have know about the accomplished speaker, Canadian Tire Ambassador and full-time dad, Karl Subban.
1. He gives his kids books for Christmas:
As an avid reader, Karl Subban says he hopes to instill a love for books in his children.
That’s why his Christmas gift to his kids is always one of the books he’s read himself.
“I enjoy books that help people develop their potential. It’s my passion,” he said after he confessed his last read was “Mind Gym.”
2. His favourite movie is ‘Lean on Me’:
Perhaps it’s because he identifies with it, being a retired educator and school principal himself, but Karl Subban says Lean on Me is at the top of his “must-watch” list.
In this movie, Morgan Freeman plays a newly-appointed principal of a decaying inner-city school that he is determined to improve.
3. On Sundays you are most likely to find him:

He loves having supper with his entire family and hanging out with his adorable grand-kids.
4. His favourite season is winter:
Despite the fact that he comes from a tropical country, Karl Subban looks forward to the colder days.
“Because of hockey, hockey and hockey,” he tells Global News – though he admits it’s not just so he can catch a glimpse of his kids playing the beautiful game on the small screen.
“For 20 years I built and maintained a backyard rink for my kids,” he said.
5. His family’s favourite food is liver:
Liver might be a tough sell in many households, but his recipe is a huge hit with his kids.
