Felix Auger-Aliassime has been busy on the court at the US Open, but he took a break one evening in New York to meet a fellow athlete of note.

The 21-year-old caught up with NHL standout P.K. Subban, who suited up for Auger-Aliassime's hometown team for seven years as a member of the Montréal Canadiens. Subban has since grown familiar with New York City and its surrounding areas after being traded by the Nashville Predators to the New Jersey Devils in June 2019.


The 32-year-old provided Auger-Aliassime with a personalized jersey. In exchange, the world No. 15 gave Subban a pair of signed sneakers.

"I always take care of my Montréal family and they always take care of me," Subban tweeted.

On Thursday, Auger-Aliassime was praised for his positive comments surrounding the LGBTQ+ community after being asked how he would feel about having an openly gay player on tour. The Canadian revealed he had started a survey within the ATP tour to help foster awareness.

Auger-Aliassime takes the court again Friday at Flushing Meadows in one of the third-rounders to watch. The No. 12 seed meets No. 18 seed Roberto Bautista Agut, with the two scheduled to open night-session play on Louis Armstrong Stadium.
