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.

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.
Jan 31 - 6:04 PM

Malcolm Subban will likely not make his NHL debut this week despite being just selected as the AHL Player of the Week.

After Saturday's enounter with the Kings, the Bruins only play once this week-- Wednesday against the Rangers. If Subban is still with the Bruins next weekend, he may get a chance to play but the speculation is that Niklas Svedberg could be back in Boston by then with Subban back in the AHL. Are the Bruins showcasing Subban for a trade? It is possible as Rask is signed to a long-term deal. If that is the case, Subban may well stay in Boston beyond the next week or so. We will keep an eye on this situation.
Jan 31 - 8:43 AM

Malcolm Subban has been called up by the Boston Bruins.

Subban was summoned to serve as Tuukka Rask's understudy while Niklas Svedberg participates in a conditioning stint. It's possible that Subban will end up making his NHL debut during this stint as Boston will play in three games over four days from Feb. 7-10. He has a 2.47 GAA and .921 save percentage in 22 AHL contests.
Jan 30 - 12:30 PM

Malcolm Subban stopped 32 of 33 shots he faced, as the Boston Bruins defeated the New York Islanders 6-1 on Friday.

Subban was very good between the pipes for the Bruins. Despite the solid showing this late into camp, don’t expect Subban to make the Bruins’ final roster. Tuukka Rask is the clear-cut starter and backup Niklas Svedberg is on a one-way contract. The 20-year-old has big upside, but still needs to spend time developing in the AHL. Many of Boston’s youngsters played well in the game. Ryan Spooner scored two goals and an assist, while Alexander Khokhlachev also added two assists.

Malcolm Subban was cheering for his older brother, P.K. Subban in Montreal's 2014 second round series against the Boston Bruins.

That's getting some attention because, obviously, Malcolm Subban is a member of the Boston Bruins. The two franchises are heated rivals, but for now the younger Subban is honing his skills in the minors while he waits for his shot in Boston. If he ever becomes the Bruins' starting goaltender, which won't happen anytime soon given Tuukka Rask's presence, and P.K. Subban signs a long-term deal with the Canadiens, then that will be another fun element to the contests between these two squads. You can rest assured that Malcolm Subban wouldn't have been rooting for his brother if Malcolm was the one playing between the pipes.
