Former NHL Player P.K. Subban Sustained Freak Ear Injury As A Broadcaster At 2024 Stanley Cup Final

Former professional Canadian ice hockey defenceman, P.K. Subban was acting as a broadcaster during Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Sunrise, Florida, when he suffered an injury.

The 13-year NHL player posted a video of himself at the doctor's office, where he explained on video that for over a week there was intense pain coming from his ear.

Subban went on to say, "I take my earpiece out, ear is throbbing me a little bit, a little bit foggy. Every day that goes by I'm like, 'Man, my ear's sore. Like, did I get an ear infection, like, what the h***?'"

After ignoring his injury for quite some time, it soon became unbearable where he had to get it checked out, and what he finds as the cause of the ailment is mind-blowing.

"I have the doctor come over to check my ear and he's like, 'Dude, there's something in your ear.'"

That is to say, apparently when Subban removed the earpiece after his broadcasting duties were finished, he didn't realize a piece of it was still stuck in his ear canal.

"This has been in my ear," he explained as the doctor showed it to the camera. "This is the part of my earpiece from Game 7. This has been in my ear for eight days."

As it turns out the discomfort was caused from the earpiece brushing up against his ear drum.

"The most excruciating pain," Subban said. "You guys wonder why I can't listen properly."

From 2009-2022, Subban played for the Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators and New Jersey Devils, as he went on to earn three All-Star selections.
