Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli made it official today by signing goaltender Malcolm Subban to a three-year entry-level contract.
Subban was drafted by the Bruins 24th overall in the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. In 2011, Subban spent his time between the pipes with the Ontario Hockey League’s Belleville Bulls where he posted a 2.50 goals against average.
Subban posted a 25-14 record and three shutouts in 39 games. This past April, Subban was ranked the top North American draft-eligible goaltender in the Central Scouting Bureau’s rankings release.
Malcolm’s older brother P.K. (Subban) plays for the Montreal Canadiens. Look for Bruins fans to start the “Malcolm’s better” chants in the garden hopefully some time this season.
