Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Malcolm Subban joined NHL on NBC analyst Anson Carter for a conversation about growing up in a hockey family, his passion for connecting with the youth in the community, and supporting Matt Dumba of the Minnesota Wild taking a knee and giving a speech last August, on the latest episode of NBC Sports’ Hockey Culture.

The conversation is available now on Hockey Culture’s dedicated YouTube Channel and below are highlights:

Subban on supporting Matt Dumba, together with Darnell Nurse, taking a knee and giving a speech prior to a game last August: “We wanted to support him and knew it would be very powerful if we had a hand on his shoulder while he was (taking a knee)…it was a great speech by him. It takes a lot of strength and courage to speak the way he did in front of everyone.” 

Subban on his passion for connecting with the youth in the local community: “When you’re looking into communities, I’m a big believer — my dad’s a principal and my sisters are teachers — that the children are our future and the more you touch children, the greater it will make our world and cities.” 


NHL on NBC analysts Anson Carter and Dominic Moore joined Kathryn Tappen to discuss the Chicago Blackhawks’ fast start this season, Patrik Laine’s impact for the Blue Jackets in Columbus as well as a look at the Penguins and the team’s potential upcoming activity in the trade market on the latest episode of NBC Sports’ NHL weekly podcast, Our Line Starts.
