Observations:

November 2013 - Malcolm Subban was the talk of the AHL world after dropping the trapper and blocker to fight Rangers prospect goaltender Scott Stajcer in a spirited tilt (video below). Through six AHL games with Providence, Subban sports a 2-3-0-0 record with a respectable 2.48 GAA and .913 save percentage. Brendan Ross


September 2013 - Malcolm Subban will spend the year in Providence after the Bruins assigned him there in the later rounds of training day cuts.  The top prospect had a solid training camp, though it ended on a poor note when he got hammered for eight goals by the Red Wings on home ice.  Subban still has a very bright future but it may be several more years (at least) before he makes a real impact in the NHL.  Michael Boeckler

 

 

July 2013 – Malcolm Subban is coming off a very successful third year with the Belleville Bulls finishing with the OHL’s best GAA (2.14) and posting the league’s best save percentage (.934). Subban will spend the summer preparing for the Bruins’ upcoming training camp and will likely find himself competing for the Providence Bruins’ (AHL) starters position come Fall of 2013. Brendan Ross

 

February 2013 - Bruins 2012 1st round selection, Malcolm Subban has been named the Canadian Hockey League's Vaughn Goaltender of the Week (ending February 24th) after posting a 3-0-0-0 record including a shutout victory and a goals against average of 1.67 and save percentage of .952. Subban's Belleville Bulls have been a rock defensively this season so his statistics are a bit skewed but he is definitely a difference maker between the pipes. Brendan Ross

 

December 2012 - Malcolm Subban was one of four goaltenders invited to take part in Canada's National Junior Selection camp for the 2013 World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. Subban is the favourite to lead Canada between the pipes heading into camp and his play for the Belleville Bulls shows that he can be a big-game performer. Brendan Ross

 

November 2012 – After signing with Boston and returning to Belleville, Subban has been rather strong and continues to show growth. He has compiled an excellent 2.24 goals against average and a sparkling .930 save percentage. Recently, he shutout the skilled Russian, Super Series team through his half of the game. Jason Banks

 

October 2012 - Malcolm Subban was named to the 2012 Subway Super Series Team OHL Roster slated to compete in a six-game series versus the Russian National Junior Team in November. Brendan Ross

 

June, 2012 - The second goaltender selected, Malcolm Subban becomes property of the Boston Bruins after being selected 24th overall. Brendan Ross

 

March, 2012  – The younger brother of Montreal Canadiens defender P.K. Subban might play a different position, but he is no less talented. Belleville Bulls’ goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban is arguably the best North American netminder of the 2012 draft class. Blessed with athleticism and a fiery work ethic, Subban placed among the top five in goals against average and save percentage in 2011-12. John Canario



Fantasy Outlook: B+
He is still a few years away from contributing in fantasy, as he has yet to be drafted and NHL teams generally don’t rush their netminders along. If he continues to develop at his current rate, he could be a reliable starting NHL goaltender in a few years.
