Subban has long been a fan of "The Nature Boy," the legendary former WWE champion known for his outrageous style and loquacious interviews.

Subban's robe was Devils red with "P.K." and a team logo on the front and "The Subbanator" and his No. 76 on the back.

MSG Network's Matt Loughlin gave way to team mascot NJ Devil, who brought out the robe and then joined Subban in a little Ric Flair strut.

"I'm so jacked up right now it's unbelievable," Subban said to the crowd.
