Malcolm Subban is an option for the Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

It's not surprising that the Bruins exposed him given that they could only protect one goaltender and that was obviously going to be Tuukka Rask. Subban hasn't developed into the goaltender that the Bruins were hoping for when they took him with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but he's still just 23-years-old, so it's too early to write him off. The Golden Knights have plenty of good goaltenders to choose from, but it would be interesting if they took Subban in the hopes that he'll still eventually develop into a starter.

Malcolm Subban is hoping to show the Bruins next season that he can step up.

The Bruins took Subban with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft and while he has potential, injuries have held him back to an extent. In addition to that, he has gotten two starts in the NHL so far and neither of them were encouraging. "My two outings weren’t very good — they were terrible, to be honest," said Subban. "I am trying to prove to everyone here that I can play, that I deserve to play, and that I want to play in the NHL." It remains to be seen who the Bruins will choose as their backup goaltender for the 2017-18 campaign, but Subban has found himself behind fellow prospect Zane McIntyre in the depth charts. McIntyre left plenty to be desired when he did play in the NHL this season, but in the AHL he outperformed Subban. It will be worth keeping an eye on Subban over the next couple seasons as those campaigns will go a long way towards determining if Subban will live up to his promise or if he will ultimately fall short of it.

Malcolm Subban will serve as a healthy scratch for the Boston Bruins in Game 2 against the Ottawa Senators.

Subban was brought up to serve as the third goaltender for the Bruins playoff run. He is joined by Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson as the only two healthy scratches.

Malcom Subban was summoned on an emergency basis on Friday.

Expect Tuukka Rask to take the net in Game 2 against Ottawa. Subban posted an 11-14-1 record with AHL Providence this season with a 2.41 GAA and a .917 save percentage this season.
Apr 14 - 8:15 PM

The Boston Bruins have assigned Malcolm Subban to AHL Providence.

Over two games of action, Subban has stopped just 16 of 22 combined shots. He's off to a rocky start in the AHL as well, so it's not likely he'll be back with Boston any time soon.

Malcolm Subban was given the hook in Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Wild.

With Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin on the shelf, the Bruins gave Subban the start. It didn't turn out the way they had hoped, as he allowed three goals on 16 shots in just over 30 minutes of action. Zane McIntyre is now between the pipes for Boston. The Bruins are currently down 3-0.

Malcolm Subban will be between the pipes for Boston on Tuesday night.

He has played just 32 minutes at the NHL level in his career, but will get a chance to play against Minnesota because of injuries to Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin. Just in case you were wondering, Subban has struggled at the AHL level this year.

Malcolm Subban could be called upon to start Tuesday night against Minnesota.

Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin were feeling banged up on Monday, so the Bruins brought up Subban from the minors. "We are in a situation here, we'll see what happens," said coach Claude Julien. "If [Subban] is going in goal, he'll go in goal, as simple as that."

The Boston Bruins have summoned Malcolm Subban on an emergency basis.

The Bruins initially resisted calling up Subban when Tuukka Rask was sidelined with an undisclosed injury due to Subban's lackluster play in the minors recently. However, with Rask still day-to-day and the Bruins scheduled to play on Tuesday and Wednesday, they have decided to promote Subban. If Rask is unavailable, then it wouldn't be surprising to see Subban start in one of Boston's next two contests.

The reason the Bruins did not call up Malcolm Subban when they sat down Tuukka Rask to recover from general soreness was simple--he hasn't played well for Providence so far this season.

Subban has been pulled twice from AHL games and the Boston braintrust felt that Zane McIntyre was a better candidate to back up Anton Khudobin while Rask heals. That has to be somehat worrisome for those who have stashed Subban for the future.

Malcolm Subban went the distance for the Boston Bruins, blocking 29 shots and giving up three goals in their 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Saturday’s preseason game.

Subban gave up one goal in the first to Sean Couturier and a pair in the second period to Jordan Weal and Brayden Schenn. The Bruins were down one goal deep into the third before David Pastrnak scored at the 16:48 minute mark to tie the game and give Subban the opportunity to win in overtime. One shot got past him in overtime, two shots missed, and he had one save en route to victory. Subban was credited with 64 minutes, 56 seconds of playing time.

Malcolm Subban is feeling better after suffering a fractured larynx in February.

Subban underwent surgery to repair the injury and said he was unable to talk for a few days. Now that the injury is behind him, he's ready to show the Bruins that he belongs in the NHL. "Working with my goalie coach Bob Essensa in Providence really helped me out a lot, just being more controlled in net and just calming down instead of being everywhere, and working on depth control and stuff like that. It really helps to be more consistent and bring your game every night," Subban said. "I think that’s one of the biggest differences in my game, on the technical side. The team was playing really well at the time, so that obviously helps for a goaltender, too."
