The Habs favourite signed Winter Classic jerseys in the atrium named after him in what was a sold-out event.
"Listen, all I did was I made a commitment to the hospital in terms of helping them raise a lot of money for a great cause and a lot of people," said Subban.
Delighted fans crammed into the atrium for the latest in a series of charitable gestures from the star defenceman.

In September, Subban pledged $10 million to the hospital. Some of the funding will be used for P.K.'s Helping Hands, which will help families struggling financially with a child's illness.
Some patients were surprised by the visit from Subban, who gave them jerseys as gifts.
He hopes to continue visiting on Sundays, a tradition that he has already started.
"I like coming on Sundays because I always feel it is a great way to start my week," said Subban. "It just grounds you."
