The most prominent black player in the NHL said he will “never” kneel during the national anthem to protest something politically.
Yahoo Sports reports, P.K. Subban performed at a fundraiser on Tuesday night in Nashville, Tenn. where he told the audience that he would “never” take a knee during the national anthem, because he has too much respect for the American flag.
The Predators organization confirmed his comments.
The Nashville Predators have announced that, as a team, they would not engage in any protests during the national anthem.
Eyewitness emailed Yahoo Sports that Subban's comments came as a surprise:
“Much to my surprise, his allegedly “impromptu” set ended with a tense promise from PK that despite his previous dancing antics during the national anthem, he would NEVER kneel during the national anthem, followed by a long rant about his “respect” for the American flag.”
