Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban has won an Olympic gold medal and a Norris Trophy and is the highest-paid blueliner in the NHL. But he also is a multimillion-dollar brand. His P.K.

Air Canada and RW&CO. -- which carries a dress-for-success clothing line, Generation Suiting, that features Subban and fellow NHLer Nolan Patrick. In a wide-ranging interview, Pernell-Karl Subban, 28, talks about his love of family, his controversial trade from Montreal to Nashville and Cole Beasley Authentic Jersey his thoughts on professional athletes' platform http://www.officialcowboysnflstore.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_COLE_BEASLEY_JERSEY.html for social justice.
ESPN.com: Let's start with your family. In his new book, "How We Did It," your dad [Karl Subban] talks about sending you out on the ice with donated equipment and not being completely sure you were wearing it the right way. What kind of influence did he have on you?
P.K. Subban: He had a big impact on my life and my career. Not just my dad, Ryan Getzlaf Jersey but my mom [Maria], as well. I had great parents growing up, along with my other two brothers [Malcolm and Jordan] and two sisters [Nastassia and Natasha]. I'm very privileged to have great parents, caring parents, parents that dedicate a lot http://www.ramsofficialsonline.com/Gerald_Everett_Jersey_Cheap of their time and energy to their children, and we're very thankful for that.
ESPN.com: I understand your dad and oldest sister [Nastassia] were among the all-time leading basketball scorers at Lakehead University [in Thunder Bay, Ontario] and York University [in Toronto]. Both of your brothers are playing professional hockey [Malcolm is a goalie with the Vegas Golden Knights, and Jordan is a defenseman Matt Read Youth jersey with the Utica Comets.] So, who's the best athlete in the family?
Subban: I don't know. We're all very young in our careers. You'll have to ask us that in another 30 or 40 years. I'm very happy for Malcolm. It's very deserving. He played well in the time he had [with the Boston Bruins, before being put on waivers], he trained really, really hard this past summer and now he's getting healthy -- and I look forward to seeing him in the lineup.
Subban: You know what? Jordan, in my opinion, when I look at all three of us, I never worry about his drive and his will to play in the NHL. He has such great skills and talent, and he's just learning and continuing to mature as a professional. I think he's going to have a long career in the NHL, because I think he wants it so bad, and he's got the skill and talent to get him there and keep him there.
He's just cutting his teeth now and learning the professional game, and I'm sure he'll get his opportunity soon. ESPN.com: So, your dad is from Jamaica and your mom is from the small Caribbean island of Montserrat. What do those roots mean to you?
Subban: I still have family in Jamaica, and I'm still very in touch with my roots there. Whether it's West Indian food or Jamaican food or participating in West Indian or Jamaican events, I do that all the time in the summertime. We're a very cultured family in that way, and it's very easy for us to embrace.
Subban: If you've never been to Nashville, you have to go to the Broadway Strip. That Strip has so much energy on it, and it's so much fun, especially for tourists to bounce around and hear the live music.
I would tell whoever has never been to Nashville to definitely take a swing at the Strip, but also try as many restaurants as you can, because Nashville's got really great food and you don't have to look far. There are some awesome steakhouses. I live just outside Nashville in Brentwood, and I love the restaurants there -- they are amazing.
