Here’s something a lot of Canadiens fans might not know: P.K. Subban used to be a forward.

There’s a great video on YouTube of Subban playing forward with the Toronto Toros as a 7-year-old at the 1996 Lakeshore Thunder Tournament. The Toros beat the Toronto Bulldogs 13-3 in the championship game and Subban scored three goals while wearing No. 51. Teammate Steven Stamkos scored once while wearing No. 77.

After practice Thursday in Brossard, Subban was asked what was the highest number of goals he ever scored in a season as a young forward.

“Oh, no … I don’t remember,” he said. “I switched over to defence at maybe 11 or 12 years old, so I’m not sure. But I always liked to score.”

Subban, who has only three goals this season along with a team-leading 30 assists, was asked if he misses playing forward.

“You know what … I don’t really miss it because I always feel that I get involved offensively, so I kind of get my fix that way,” the defenceman said. “But it would be interesting to play centre for a couple of shifts.”

What would Subban say if coach Michel Therrien asked him to play forward?

“I’d do anything, yeah,” Subban said with a big smile. “If he wants me to play goalie, I’ll play goalie.”

Therrien didn’t speak with the media Thursday after getting a strong vote of confidence from general manager Marc Bergevin, so he couldn’t be asked about the possibility of giving Subban a shot at forward.
