Here’s P.K. Subban doing the weather in Montreal

Following in the footsteps of Vancouver’s Kevin Bieksa (and, from the non-hockey division, Los Angeles’ Metta World Peace), Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban filled in as a guest meteorologist on CTV News Montreal on Tuesday evening.

Pretty solid weather reportage from Subban — nice suit, good energy, effervescent smile.

A far cry from Bieksa, who didn’t even bother to wear socks (FF to 6:00):

Bieksa did come strong with the “looking very green out today” line, though, so there’s that.

As for Subban…he actually “won” the weatherman gig after making a video resume. Because, you know, the lockout.

Here’s more, from the Montreal Gazette:

“Hi I’m P.K. Subban and I’m interested in a position in your company,” Subban says in the video, which you can see below. “I’m a hard worker and a team player. I’m pretty good with my hands and I have international experience.

“I have excellent  problem-solving skills. I take responsibility for my actions. I’m not afraid to take one for the team. Oh yeah, and I’m great with computers. I can start immediately.

“Seriously … I’m bored.”

After seeing that, CTV quickly snapped hired him.  No word if they’ll one-up the Habs by actually signing him to a contract extension.
