CBC- Nothing has been going right recently for the beleaguered Montreal Canadiens and their fans.
A one-month-old baby was hospitalized after being hit in the head by an errant puck following an open practice on Sunday afternoon at the Bell Centre, according to a post on Facebook by the infant's mother, Valérie Meloche.
The incident was said to have happened when the team was soft-tossing souvenir pucks to their young fans after practice.
"Unfortunately, one of the fans who caught a puck thrown by P.K. Subban was just a month old — and she caught it with her head," explained Meloche.
According to Meloche, the baby named Beatrice was knocked unconscious and given CPR on site before being taken to the Montreal Children's Hospital in critical but stable condition. She was monitored for a concussion, but is expected to make a full recovery and has since been released from hospital.
I guess this is finally it. I have avoided boarding the P.K. Subban hate train for this long, but I have to draw the line somewhere and he has given me no choice. It's one thing to extravagantly celebrate a goal, or shamelessly embellish contact, but when you start pegging newborns with vulcanized rubber I have to cut ties. Turns out all those taped gestures of good will were just a cover for his undeniable hatred of toddlers. Showing up to play street hockey with kids? Dressing up as a bus driver before surprising them at the rink? All just a way for him to hide how much he disliked their younger, smellier siblings. P.K. Subban is only for the children as long as said children can go to the bathroom on their own. You're just not deserving of respect in his eyes until you are old enough to sit in your own seat. You want P.K. to appreciate you as a fan? It's very simple, grow up or get concussed. You know how much criticism he deals with on a day-to-day basis? The last thing he needs is to hear more whining and crying. You wanted more attention baby Beatrice? Well, you got it, but you probably should have let your hands fully develop first.
In all seriousness, I am glad the kid is alright, because the people that really deserved a hit to the head is her parents. Not saying you can't bring a baby to a hockey game, but sitting just a few rows from the ice probably isn't the smartest idea. Especially if you you plan on ignoring everything that is going on around you as players soft toss pucks into the crowd. Aren't women supposed to develop motherly instincts once they have children. Hey Meloche, where were you on that one dipshit? How about nurturing your child instead of holding her up like your standing on the edge of 'Pride Rock' as blunt objects are whizzing by? At least pretend to put your 1 month old's well being in front of our own while you're in public, because P.K. Subban is already dealing with enough unjust blame from his head coach to have to start worrying about where he throws his souvenirs.
