Subban shared a few posts on social media acknowledging the incident before he played in the Devils' 3-2 lo s to the Kings on Sunday. Following the lo s in New Jersey, Subban shared a few emotional words on the state of the game and reflected on how everyone can strive to be better. He also explained that he shared a conversation with his family, including his brothers Jordan, 26, and Malcolm, 28, who currently serves as a goalie for the Buffalo Sabres.

"I didn't sleep much, I maybe got to bed around 5 a.m. and had a conversation with my family. Sheer disappointment. It's distasteful. There's Billy Williams Jersey no room for it in our game. I'm embarra sed because our game is better than this. What I think about is all of the great people and the great things about our game that I love. The unfortunate thing isn't just the incident, the unfortunate thing is how many kids deal with this every day and it doesn't come to light."
