The Nashville Predators defenseman will captain the NHL All-Star Game’s Central team this weekend.

WME has signed NHL star P.K. Subban, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. The agency will represent him in all endeavors off the ice.

The Nashville Predators defenseman will be in Los Angeles this weekend for Sunday’s NHL All-Star Game, where, as top fan vote-getter from the Central Division, he will serve as captain of the Central team. He previously was named to the 2012-2013 and 2014-2015 First All-Star Teams.

Subban was drafted in the second round of the 2007 NHL Draft and spent his first seven seasons with the Montreal Canadiens before being traded to Nashville in June. He won the James Norris Memorial Trophy, awarded to the league’s top defense player, during the 2012-2013 season, and at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, the Toronto native helped Canada win gold.

In November, Subban was featured in the documentary P.K. Subban Skate Past the Noise: The Off-Season, which aired on HBO Canada. His P.K.’s Helping Hand fund, which is dedicated to assisting families of ill children, has pledged $10 million to the Montreal Children’s Hospital — its largest such gift from any Canadian athlete.
