In an emotional video to the young patients at the hospital, the star reiterated his commitment to them.
The video opens with a young child poking his head around the corner of the hospital, a sweet smile on his face.
It starts: “On June 29, 2016, P.K. Subban was traded to the Nashville Predators. He decided to write a letter to his friends at the Montreal Children’s Hospital, but needed some help handing them out.”
Subban, who was traded in June much to the dismay of many fans, was back in Montreal to host the P.K. Subban’s All-Star Comedy Gala at this year’s Just For Laughs festival, raising more than $130,000 for the hospital.
On Facebook, Subban wrote: “it was important to me that they knew that regardless of where I live and work, I will never stop raising money and awareness.”
Patients read the letter out loud, their voices faltering at times.
“To all my friends at the hospital, almost one year ago I decided to make one of the biggest commitments of my life. It all started with individual or team visits, but it very quickly became a $10 million commitment.
“I did this with the intention of helping you all through your daily battles and making a measurable impact on the community of Montreal.
“Since I arrived in Montreal six years ago, I felt a connection to the hospital. Each and every time I had the chance to meet one of you, I got the opportunity to be inspired by your stories, courage and perseverance.
“Your positivity and attitude continue to inspire me every day. You might think that I’m doing so much for you, but the truth is you do much more for me.
“You can’t imagine how rewarding it is to watch you get better and leave the hospital with your families, but just because I have a new address doesn’t mean that my commitment to you and to the hospital is going to change one bit.
“But even while living in Nashville, I still expect Valentine’s Day letters, virtual hugs and spontaneous songs. In return, I will never stop fundraising and raising awareness for all of you and don’t worry, I’ll be back with many more surprise visits. With all my love, best wishes.”
The video ends with Subban blowing a kiss to the camera and saying “I love you guys.”
