Malcolm Subban stopped 30 of the 34 shots he faced in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory against the visiting Sabres.
Things got a little dicey late, as Subban and the Knights blew a 4-1 lead with 10 minutes left in regulation, including a game-tying goal to Evander Kane with an extra attack at the 19:51 mark of the third period. However, David Perron bailed out the Knights with the overtime winner, his second marker of the night. Oct 18 - 1:47 AM

Malcolm Subban will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Subban recorded his first career win against his former team, the Boston Bruins, on Sunday night. With Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) injured, Subban will likely see a lot more playing time in the near future.

Malcolm Subban made 20 saves on 21 shots to win his first NHL game against his former team on Sunday night.

Making his first start for the expansion Golden Knights against the Bruins, Subban finally tasted victory in his third NHL game. The 23-year-old improves to 1-0 with a 955 save percentage and 1.00 goals against average after Vegas' 3-1 win over the Bruins.

Malcolm Subban is expected to start Sunday against his former Boston teammates.

Subban was claimed by Vegas off waivers from the Bruins earlier this month. The former first-round pick (24th overall) by Boston in 2012 will get his first start with the Golden Knights because Marc-Andre Fleury is out with a concussion. Subban has just two previous starts in his NHL career and they were both losses.

It is possible that Malcolm Subban could get the start in goal Saturday against the Coyotes.

Marc-Andre Fleury was spectacular in Vegas' 2-1 comeback win over Dallas on Friday night stopping 45 of 46 shots and coach Gerrard Gallant may opt to give him a rest after such a difficult and emotional game. That would make Subban the starter. Check back with us later Saturday for updates.
Oct 7 - 1:47 PM

Malcolm Subban is slated to be Vegas' backup goalie in Friday's opener.

The Golden Knights put Calvin Pickard on waivers Thursday and he is expected to be sent to the minors if he clears. "It's a business, but I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity that I have right now," Subban said. "I've just got to keep working hard and work as hard as I can to improve my game and be ready. That's all I can really do. That's my focus right now. That's my No. 1 goal right now, so I'm pretty determined."

Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney didn't want to lose Malcolm Subban on waivers.

The Bruins placed Subban on waivers on Monday, and he was claimed by the Vegas Golden Knights earlier today. "I had my fingers crossed that it wasn't gonna happen," said Sweeney. "But that's part of the business, and we wish Malcolm obviously success in the opportunity that he's going to get. But it's a loss for us." Subban, 23, was drafted in the first round, 24th overall, in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He had 2.41 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage in the AHL last season.
Oct 3 - 9:34 PM

Vegas has claimed Malcolm Subban off waivers from Boston.

The Golden Knights already have Marc-Andre Fleury and Calvin Pickard as their top-two goalies on the depth chart. Subban has only made two NHL appearances in the past four years after he was drafted 24th overall back in 2012.
Oct 3 - 12:18 PM

Malcolm Subban has been placed on waivers by Boston.

Subban had a solid preseason, but it wasn't enough to move in front of Anton Khudobin for Boston's backup goalie position. If he clears then he will head to Providence of the AHL.
Oct 2 - 4:16 PM

Malcolm Subban will require waivers if he is going to begin the season in the minors.

"This is where I got drafted and this is where I want to play, obviously," Subban said. "It's always good to stay in the same organization. It's always easier that way. I have a good situation here with the staff and everything and you don't want to lose that and just start all over. This is where I was drafted and this is where I want to play." Anton Khudobin is expected to be Boston's backup in 2017-18, so GM Don Sweeney will likely have to make the decision to place Subban on waivers even though there is some concern that he could be claimed.
Sep 29 - 8:49 AM

Malcolm Subban could get the start in Monday's preseason game against Chicago.

Boston wants to see if Subban can push Anton Khudobin for the backup goalie position going into the regular season. Khudobin remains the favorite to earn the role and Zane McIntyre was sent down to the minors on Sunday.
Sep 25 - 9:45 AM

Malcolm Subban believes he's capable of playing in the NHL.

Subban has played in just two NHL games in his career, but he's looked overmatched whenever he's been between the pipes. "I believe I can play," Subban said. "I know my talent better than anyone else and I believe I can play. I want to come in to camp and prove that. Obviously, it’s easier said than done. Everyone in camp believes they can play or else they wouldn’t be here. I’m just trying to prove I can play in the NHL, or get an opportunity at least." Anton Khudobin is set to be Tuukka Rask's backup goalie, but Subban could be first in line if one of them gets injured. He has no fantasy value going into 2017-18.
Sep 10 - 12:15 PM

Malcolm Subban has signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Boston Bruins.

Subban posted a 2.41 GAA and .917 save percentage in 32 AHL games last season. He appeared in one game with Boston but allowed three goals on 16 shots.
Jul 16 - 9:25 AM

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.
Jun 19 - 9:13 AM

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.
