All of a sudden Subban isnt speaking anymore

All of a sudden Subban isnt speaking anymore

Three days ago, P.K. Subban spoke to reporters after Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final in Pittsburgh.

But Subban hasnt spoken to the media since, and thats a story in itself. Yesterday, he slipped out on reporters, for which the Predators apologized. This morning after he skated, he once again wasnt available, and this time the media held a peaceful protest.

From Yahoo Sports:

And so a truly bizarre scene played out in the Predators locker room. Subban entered it in full uniform, briefly, before walking out. After he came off the ice, he was heard asking Predators PR staffers if he should talk to the media.

Moments later, reporters were told that Subban wouldnt be talking.

Yet media from all over the world continued to stand around Subbans stall, waiting to talk to a player that Predators Director of Communications Kevin Wilson said three times wouldnt be available. Perhaps trying to will him into existence. Officials from the NHL attempted to intervene and have Subban made available, but were denied by the Predators.

The surreal sit-in lasted about 20 minutes. Finally, Wilson announced that the team was going to have a meeting and the media would have to clear the room.
