The Boston Bruins have signed goaltender Malcolm Subban to a three-year entry-level contract.
Subban, the younger brother of Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban, was drafted by the Bruins 24th overall in the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the 2011-12 season with the Ontario Hockey League's Belleville Bulls, posting a 2.50 goals-against average and .923 save percentage, with a 25-14 record and three shutouts in 39 games.
The 18-year-old from Rexdale, Ontario, also played in six playoff games for the Bulls, posting a 2.93 goals-against average and .917 save percentage and earning a 2-3-1 record.
Internationally, Subban played for Canada's National Men's Under-18 Team at the 2011 IIHF World-Under 18 Championship in Germany, helping his team finish fourth with a 2.98 goals-against average and 3-2 record. He also attended Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence goaltending camp in Calgary, AB, in June 2011, and most recently helped Team Canada clinch a series victory over Russia in the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge.
