In their three-hour journey through the Canadiens’ first day of training camp Wednesday in Brossard the 55 invited players will undergo medicals and physical testing. They’ll see the team’s doctor and dentist and be weighed and measured. They’ll also smile for the camera — or not — for their official NHL head shot. P.K. Subban who won the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s top defenceman last season is going into camp the same weight he was last year — “I’m always in between 218 220” — although he said he’s probably leaner. “I’ve worked hard this summer. I feel good. That’s the most important thing” Subban said. “As long as I feel good and I feel comfortable and confident then everything else should take care of itself.” Subban jumped back into his training in May. The summer regimen included several twice-a-day workouts and a 21-day no-carb diet. “I usually train Monday Tuesday Wednesday twice and then once Thursday once Friday and I skate Sunday nights and that’s it. So it’s usually about 10 times a week” said Subban who has one season left on a two-year $5.75-million contract. Subban works out in Toronto with trainer Clance Laylor. Asked what is the hardest drill he does in their training sessions Subban said: “They’re all hard. There’s nothing easy.” Subban and new teammate George Parros attended the launch on Monday of EA Sports NHL 14. A few hundred people showed up at a downtown Montreal nightclub to try out the latest instalment in the popular sports video game series and to meet the two Habs. “We’re wearing the same equipment that I do in the regular season” Subban said of his likeness in the video game. “Even my face kind of looks the same too so it’s kind of cool to see.” With media cameras trained on them Subban and Parros tried out the new game briefly in a Hab vs. Hab contest that Subban won 2-1. “I’d like not to talk about that” Parros cracked afterwards.
