Claude Julien said that Malcolm Subban was "good" in Saturday night's win over Detroit.

The Bruins won the game 4-3 in overtime and Subban stopped 18 of 21 shots. "He was good," coach Claude Julien said. "There were some goals where I’m going to have to talk to (goalie coach) Bob (Essensa) . . . maybe look at some replays and see if he could have been better positioned, but he made some big saves. There was a lot of traffic in front of him tonight, and that’s what you have to do. You have to battle through traffic. They always have a guy in front, and it makes it hard for those goaltenders to see the pucks. But I thought he did a good job battling through that." Subban, Jeremy Smith and training camp invitee Jonas Gustavsson are all in the mix to be Tuukka Rask's backup this season.

Malcolm Subban turned aside all 17 shots he faced in Tuesday's exhibition game against Washington.

Zane McIntyre entered the game halfway through the second period and he became the first Bruins' netminder this preseason to allow a goal in a 2-1 overtime victory. Jonas Gustavsson and Jeremy Smith combined to shut out New Jersey in the exhibition opener on Sunday. It looks like a close race for the backup goalie job so far.

Malcolm Subban might get a shot at serving as the Boston Bruins' number two goaltender next season.

It will depend largely on how the summer plays out for the Bruins. They lost their previous backup goaltender in Niklas Svedberg as he signed with a KHL club. The Bruins will likely sign a netminder as a result, but it might be to a two-way contract with the intention of having the veteran option compete with Subban and fellow AHL goalie Jeremy Smith for the job during training camp. Subban had a 2.44 GAA and .921 save percentage in 35 AHL contests in 2014-15. He also made his NHL debut on Feb. 20, but was pulled after allowing three goals on six shots.

Malcolm Subban has been sent back down to the AHL by the Bruins.

Subban’s first NHL start Friday night did not go as planned, as the 21-year-old allowed three goals on six shots en route to an early shower after 31 minutes. He has a 2.47 goals-against and .920 save percentage with Providence, where he’ll likely spend the rest of the season. Boston recalled Ryan Spooner to fill Subban's roster spot.

Malcolm Subban was pulled in Boston's 5-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues.

Subban's first NHL start couldn't have gone much worse. He stopped all three shots he faced in the first period, but he was yanked after allowing three goals on the Blues' first three shots in the second frame. Subban returned to the Bruins net late in the third period with the game already out of reach. The 21-year-old definitely needs to spend some more time developing in the American Hockey League.

Malcolm Subban will face the St. Louis Blues on Friday night.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate and he will make his NHL debut against a St. Louis team that ranks fourth overall in the league standings. Boston is desperate for points right now, but Tuukka Rask has been overworked so he'll get the night off.
Feb 20 - 1:12 PM

Malcolm Subban's first NHL start might come at St. Louis on Friday.

Tuukka Rask has played 24 of the last 25 games and the Bruins want to see what Subban can bring to the table. Coach Claude Julien said that Subban would play at some point during the trip.
Feb 20 - 10:10 AM

Malcolm Subban may get the nod for Wednesday's game against Edmonton.

"I haven't made my decision," said coach Claude Julien. "It will be made (today). We're going to regroup and see which direction we want to take. Most of the time this is my call. But (it may not be) when you bring a goaltender like Subban up. It needs to be a group decision. He's going to play on this trip at some point." The Bruins finish their road swing with games against St. Louis and Chicago, so it makes sense that Subban would get his first NHL start against the Oilers.
Feb 18 - 10:02 AM

Malcolm Subban has been called up by the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins made it clear that they were going to bring Subban up soon and now we have confirmation. This isn't necessarily an indication that the Bruins are unhappy with Niklas Svedberg. Instead, this might just be a short stint for Subban to get more of a feel for what it's like in the NHL. He also might make his NHL debut in the near future.
Feb 16 - 5:48 PM

The Boston Bruins are expected to call up Malcolm Subban in the near future.

Subban isn't expected to join Boston in time for Monday's game in Calgary though. Bruins coach Claude Julien said that this doesn't mean anything as far as current backup goaltender Niklas Svedberg is concerned. That being said, we wouldn't be surprised if Subban makes his NHL debut during his next stint with Boston.
Feb 16 - 4:49 PM

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has received inquires from other teams about the availability of Malcolm Subban.

Subban has the potential to be a great starting goaltender and given that Boston already has Tuukka Rask, it's not hard to see why many would think that Subban might eventually be traded. That being said, Chiarelli reportedly isn't looking to trade Subban and would only pull the trigger on a deal involving the goaltending prospect if he was blown away by the offer.
Feb 13 - 2:17 PM

Malcolm Subban has been returned to the minors.

He didn't get to see any NHL playing time during his time with the big club. Subban backed up Tuukka Rask, while Niklas Svedberg was in the minors on a conditioning assignment. The 21-year-old netminder is still waiting to make his first appearance in the NHL.
Feb 9 - 1:57 PM

Malcolm Subban could see his first NHL action this weekend.

The Bruins play the New York Islanders on Saturday and the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday. Coach Claude Julien hasn't ruled out playing the 21-year-old netminder.
Feb 6 - 10:15 AM

Malcolm Subban will backup Tuukka Rask on Saturday night against the LA Kings.

Original Bruins backup Niklas Svedberg, whose played just four times since the beginning of December, is on a conditioning stint in AHL Providence. And with the Bruins in a tight playoff race, it's unlikely this is anything more than an opportunity to expose Subban to the bright lights of the NHL.
