P.K. Subban, the beloved hockey player and ex-Canadiens defenceman, turned 28 this past weekend.
To celebrate, the Montreal Children’s Hospital released a 21-second video on Twitter wishing Subban a happy birthday.

While playing for the Montreal Canadiens, the Toronto native was known for his frequent visits to the hospital and his $10 million donation.
Despite being traded to the Nashville Predators last year, Montrealers, and the patients and staff of the Montreal Children’s Hospital in particular, clearly still have a sweet spot for the NHL player.
This touching message comes less than three months after the Canadiens created a short tribute to Subban which was played at the Bell Centre upon his return to Montreal after being traded.
Happy Birthday, P. K.!
