Just when we thought P.K. Subban couldn't be more awesome, he went and did this.

The Montreal Canadiens defenseman surprised a group of 110 kids from Toronto's Jane and Finch area after they won a "Jeopardy" trivia game against an American team, NHL.com reported.

Subban initially appeared via video and said he wished he could congratulate them in person. Then he appeared through a side door and was greeted with chants of, "P.K.! P.K.! P.K.!"

The kids were attending a summer camp known as Success Beyond Limits (SBL), an educational program that helps them prepare for Grade 9.

Jane and Finch falls within the Black Creek neighbourhood, where high school graduation rates are low, Metro News reported.

Crime has also been a problem at Jane and Finch. Between 2007 and 2013, 10 youth under 19 years old were killed in the area, which is double the rate of any other neighbourhood in the city, the Toronto Star reported.

Subban, whose father Karl was principal of the area's Brookview Middle School, told NHL.com that life is about making the "right decisions."

"Some people get a second chance when they made the wrong decisions, but we're trying to give these kids an opportunity to make the right decisions in life," Subban said.

The Norris Trophy-winning defenseman gave some of the young people in attendance gifts such as a T-shirt and he even posed for a group photo.

Afghani immigrant Muskam Muhibullah didn't know who Subban was before he came in. But she does now.

"It was a thrill to meet him," she told NHL.com.

This isn't the first time Subban has given his time to help young people.

He and his brother Malcolm, a Boston Bruins prospect, have acted as ambassadors for Hyundai Hockey Helpers, a program that helps low-income families afford equipment so their kids can play Canada's game, the Toronto Star reported.

Subban grew up in a single-income household where both he and his two brothers played hockey. Their father Karl would take them to Toronto's Nathan Phillips Square so they could practise for free.

"We've always had this mentality of helping others before we help ourselves," Subban told the Star in 2012.
