Jordan Subban is taking the high road after the websites for both the Vancouver Sun and Province newspapers published a photo caption identifying him as “the dark guy in the middle.”

“I heard about that,” said Subban, per The Province. “I had a chance to talk to a representative from the paper and it seemed like a pretty honest mistake. Am I worried about it? No. If people should be talking about something, it should be the way I played last night rather than that. Hopefully, it will just die down.

“It was just unfortunate. I don’t think there were any bad intentions. It is what it is and I’ve moved on and I’m sure everyone else will, too.”

Both newspapers offered apologies to Subban...

...but that didn’t stop the story from going viral.

Subban, the 19-year-old brother of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, scored a goal in last night’s 4-2 Canucks win over San Jose at Rogers Arena.

Subban, a 2013 Vancouver draft pick, is flying home today to rejoin the OHL’s Belleville Bulls.
