BROSSARD, Quebec (AP) - Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban has a suggestion for the French-language rights group that complained about the way hockey announcers were pronouncing the defenseman’s first name during French-language broadcasts.

He joked after practice Wednesday that “since we’re changing the pronunciation of my name, just start calling me Denzel.”

Montreal La Presse obtained a complaint filed by a little-known language group saying it didn’t like the English pronunciation of his initials and suggesting the French Pay-Kah instead.

Subban isn’t concerned.

He quipped that “it sounds kind of sexy, actually. I kind of like it. So, I’d say ‘c’est tres bien, but my name is P.K.’”
