MONTREAL -- Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was standing on the ice in tears following a video tribute by the Montreal Canadiens prior to his first game against his former team at Bell Centre on Thursday.

The Canadiens video ran down Subban's entire time with the Canadiens, from the time he was taken in the second round of the 2007 NHL Draft, running through some of his most memorable goals at Bell Centre and his work in the community.

The sellout Bell Centre crowd broke into its familiar "P.K.! P.K.!" chant as a lone spotlight shone on Subban on the Predators blue line. He acknowledged the fans with tears streaming down his face.
