“Practice Matters More Than Games”: Karl Subban Raised Three NHL Players. His New Book Tells Us How.

Former school principal Karl Subban understands success in life (and on the ice), with three NHL-drafted sons—including famed player P.K. Subban—to prove it. The newly-released How We Did It is a must-read motivational, grit, and parenting primer from a sports-loving educator with a gift for fostering  potential.

Boasting three decades of teaching, coaching, and parenting, Subban is no rookie when it comes to motivating young people. Now, in his first book, he shares the trials and milestones of his life—from leaving behind his own dream of playing professional basketball to inspire students as a teacher and principal, to raising and coaching three NHL players. That powerhouse mini-team includes the former Montreal Canadien, now-Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban—one of the league’s most “thrilling” players and an Olympic Gold Medal winner. 


In his wise and funny keynotes, the senior Subban draws on his lifetime accomplishments as an educator and father of “Team Subban” to motivate those wishing to nourish potential, in others or themselves, no matter their stickhandling skills.  


How We Did It: The Subban Plan for Success in Hockey, School and Life is out now from Penguin Random House.
