PHOTO: P.K. Subban helps Seth Rogen drink beer from Stanley Cup
P.K. Subban made a fun cameo at the Just For Laughs gala in Montreal Saturday night. He brought two pitchers of beer to help actor Seth Rogen live a life-long dream of drinking from the Stanley Cup.
Noted famous Canadian and comedic actor, Seth Rogen was in Montreal for Saturday night’s “Just For Laughs” gala. The charity event featured other funny people like comedians Hannibal Buress, Jim Norton and Jim Gaffigan. But there were two other notable Montreal-related cameos: Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and the NHL’s most famous star, the Stanley Cup.
Rogen wanted to fulfill his dream of drinking beer out of the Stanley Cup, which is probably a dream of anyone that likes hockey and beer. He enlisted Subban to help in this aim. So out came Subban with two pitchers of beer for Lord Stanley’s oversized chalice.
The beer was poured, Rogen sipped and Subban gave the star of such hits as Knocked Up and Pineapple Express a little beer shower with what was left in the pitchers.
Don’t worry, Habs fans. It appears that Subban himself did not touch the Cup, which he hasn’t yet won as a player.
Maybe the more nervous among Habs fans aren't overly thrilled to see Subban out and about while in the middle of a rather sizable contract negotiation with the Canadiens. Subban remains unsigned as a restricted free agent and is due a huge raise. If the contract talks are weighing heavily on Subban, he's certainly not showing it (which is probably a good sign for Montreal supporters).
Subban is due for an arbitration hearing on Friday, Aug. 1, if a deal is not reached before then. The talks have been very hush-hush so far, with neither side revealing much.
Subban was at the RBC Canadian Open Saturday as well and spoke briefly with reporters while there.
"I'll answer one question about the negotiation: It's been kept pretty quiet the whole time and it's going to remain that way until a deal's done," he said according to the Canadian Press. "As of right now, I'm just trying to enjoy the day and not think of anything."
The deal is going to get done at some point this week, be it before or after the arbitration hearing. Subban is likely to become one of the highest paid players in the league once he signs on the dotted line. Until then, it’s good to see one of the NHL’s most entertaining personalities keeping things light in this most crucial of offseasons in his young career.
