Jordan Subban is a defensive prospect with the Vancouver Canucks. He is the younger brother of PK Subban of the Montreal Canadiens, one of the sport’s biggest and brightest young stars. He is also the younger brother of Boston Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban. These are all better ways of describing him than the manner in which the Vancouver Sun’s photo caption chose to describe him after scoring a goal in a preseason game against San Jose on Monday.



Vancouver Sun deputy editor Gillian Burnett apologized for the caption, and it was eventually changed. That said, how on earth do you let this get to the public? It’s at best egregiously stupid and at worst terribly racist and demeaning. Hopefully they’ll be a little more careful next time.
