Happy birthday, P.K. Subban. Love, Montreal Children's Hospital.

The patients and staff at the Montreal Children's Hospital sang "Happy Birthday" to Subban and shared the video in celebration of the Nashville Predators defenseman's 28th birthday Saturday.

Subban pledged a $10 million donation to Montreal Children's Hospital in 2015, when he was still a member of the Montreal Canadiens. He was traded by the Canadiens to the Predators for Shea Weber on June 29 but maintained his commitment to the hospital and has since returned to visit patients.

"Yeah, they've done that a couple of times where my heart's in my mouth and they've sent me a few videos," Subban said. "I know they did that sort of like a hip-hop video with one of my friends Cart and Al back in Toronto. They sort of did that video for me with my parents and everybody and it was great. They did another video for me on my birthday.

"And it's pretty special to know that they're still thinking about me and not just me now they're thinking about our team and the organization and our team's success."

Fans in Montreal have flocked to the Predators bandwagon because of Subban, especially after the Canadiens were eliminated in the Eastern Conference First Round in six games by the New York Rangers.

Subban will celebrate his birthday in southern California with the Predators in the midst of the Western Conference Final against the Anaheim Ducks. Subban shared his gratitude toward the hospital's gesture only a few hours after he helped Nashville win Game 1 of the series 3-2 with an assist in overtime Friday.
