We’ve told you how PK Subban is not only a great hockey player, but he’s also a funny guy. Last night at the NHL’s All-Star Skills Competition Subban decided to have a little more fun, all while paying respect to NHL legend Jaromir Jagr.
If you recall, Jagr was voted by the fans to the All-Star game, even though he stated before final votes were tallied that he didn’t want to be there.
Fans-I appreciate your votes for All-Star game, but 3 on 3 would kill me,and i don't want to die yet:)Thank you for understanding. Too old:)

Unfortunately for Jagr, if he were to skip the All-Star Game he could face a one-game suspension. Not shocking though when you think about the similarities between NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Both are useless and both spend more time fining and suspending players for the dumbest infractions, rather than using their power to make powerful statements.
In any event, Jagr was there at the skills competion and so was Subban. Take a look at Subban showing Jagr some love.

Much respect to both Subban and the legend Jagr.
