Yet another hockey player has weighed in on kneeling during the The Star-Spangled Banner. And this time, we think you'll agree with their comments.
According to Yahoo News, PK Subban performed at a fundraiser on Tuesday night at Zanies Comedy Club in Nashville and told the audience he would “never” kneel for the anthem because of his respect for the American flag.
The Canadian athlete's comments are similar to that made by American Auston Matthews who said kneeling during the anthem disrespects the military.
His comments are also the opposite of those made by San Jose Sharks player, Joel Ward, who is also a black Canadian. When asked if he'd consider taking a kneel during the anthem, Ward said “It’s definitely something I wouldn’t cross out.”
The Yahoo News article continues saying that according to Seth Dean, a Predators fan who was at the fundraiser, Subban took the stage and said, “he will continue to stand, respect, and sing along with U.S. Anthem.”
Subban is seen by many to be the highest caliber black player the NHL has ever had, one of the league's top defensemen, and a fantastic role-model off the ice.
