P.K. Subban got an engagement ring for Christmas.

Lindsey Vonn, his fiancée, popped the question in what she termed a 'non-traditional move," saying she asked the New Jersey Devils defenseman to marry her.

The couple has been dating for two years.

Vonn posted the news, along with two pictures on Christmas night. In the first picture, Vonn and Subban are posed in front of a Christmas tree, wearing matching striped pajamas, with three dogs in the foreground. The other is a closeup of the engagement ring on Subban's finger. 

Tweet from @lindseyvonn: Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!! On our 2 year anniversary, in a ���non traditional��� move, I asked PK to marry me and he said, Yes ������! Women aren���t the only ones who should get engagement rings! #MerryChristmas #equality pic.twitter.com/hhdm85RoWi

Vonn, a retired championship ski racer, ended the tweet with the hashtags "MerryChristmas" and equality."

The couple had first announced their engagement in August. According to Vogue, Subban proposed to Vonn at their home in Los Angeles on Aug. 14.

"Lindsey's the best thing that's ever happened to me," Subban told the magazine. "There are people in life that deserve to be with good people. They have that person who takes care of them and makes them smile, and she deserves to be with someone who loves her more than anything else in the world, and I do."

The 30-year-old Subban joined the Devils this season after being traded from the Nashville Predators on June 22, 2019. He won the 2013 Norris Trophy, as the League's best defenseman, while with the Montreal Canadiens.

Subban also celebrated the couple's two-year anniversary with a Twitter post Wednesday, but before the big news broke.
