    P.K. Subban Totally Nailed This Don Cherry Impression

    But he's no Bobby Orr, eh?

    Montreal Canadien and all around great human P.K. Subban was in the Sportsnet studio recently to record promos for the NHL season. He wore an incredible, very Don Cherry suit.

    Sure enough, Subban broke out a Don Cherry impression that caused Hockey Night in Canada host George Stroumboulopoulos to completely lose his shit. You gotta watch it.

    The video was shot by Corbin Smith, who was working on set. He says Subban's Cherry impression was completely spontaneous.

    @CraigSilverman @BuzzFeedCanada I *probably* can't comment too much about the actual promo spot. That impression was 100% unexpected though.

    How good was it? Let's compare Subban's desk piano playing...

    Nailed it.

    Subban also perfectly dropped a classic Cherry line.
