New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban announced Wednesday that he made a sizable donation to the GoFundMe page that was set up for George Floyd's daughter Gianna.
The GoFundMe page for six-year-old Gianna had eclipsed $800,000 as of Wednesday afternoon and has an end goal of $1 million.
Floyd died last Monday while in police custody in Minneapolis. Officer Derek Chauvin had his knee placed on the back of Floyd's neck for several minutes straight despite the fact that Floyd said he couldn't breathe on multiple occasions. Floyd was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
Chauvin was subsequently fired and then arrested, and he has since been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.
Protests against police brutality and racial injustice have been held in cities across the United States since Floyd's death.
Subban has registered 426 points in 713 career regular-season games, and is a three-time All-Star and one-time winner of the Norris Trophy, which is given annually to the NHL's top defenseman.
