When this young hockey player was bullied by racists, his hero sent him an inspirational message.

While representing hockey in Michigan, 13 -year-old Ty Cornett was subjected to ethnic insults and menaces from other antagonists, and more amazingly, parents.

The bullying started during a tournament last spring, and continued until eventually Cornett’s parents considered removing the child from hockey after an overly bad occurrence earlier in the season.

But when Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban was tipped off to the bullying by the papa of one of Cornett’s teammates, the professional hockey player texted Cornett a video offering the adolescent names of impetu.

Subban preserved the video while dallying against the Detroit Red Wings in Little Caesars Arena, practically 40 miles from Cornett’s home in Plymouth.

“I can tell you this right now: As long as you’re still breathing in this world, you’ve got to believe in yourself and give nothing tell you what you can and can’t do, ” says Subban in the video. “Especially if it’s because of the color of your skin.”

” … I just want to tell you that when you’re playing hockey, “youre playing” because you cherish the game and you want to play. Tell nobody take that away from you.”

Subban is no stranger to intolerance. As one of nine active pitch-black NHL players, Subban has had ethnic insults and trash shed at him by hockey devotees at times.

The video was posted on Reddit by user hockey7 676, one of Cornett’s parents. They detailed his experiences in the comments:

Subban’s texts affected Cornett. “Saturday darknes he received the message and get seeds, ” said Cornett’s father, Matthew, to NHL.com. “He has probably watched the video 500 times.”

“This has meant the world to Ty, ” said Matthew. “As a parent, I exclaimed when I encountered the video. It’s been very tough to hear your son called frightful things.

“This video intended as much to my spouse and I as it did to Ty.”

Subban’s video seems to have given Cornett the inducement he necessitated. Harmonizing to Matthew, “That night he had a game, and I have never seen him happier to go.”
