Bruins sign top pick Malcolm Subban
The Boston Bruins on Thursday signed 2012 first-round draft pick Malcolm Subban to a three-year entry level contract.

The Boston Bruins on Thursday signed 2012 first-round draft pick Malcolm Subban to a three-year entry-level contract.

The 6-foot-1, 188-pound goalie, the 24th player taken at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh in June, posted a 2.50 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 39 games with the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League in 2011-12.

Subban was ranked the top North American draft-eligible goaltender by NHL Central Scouting heading into the draft.

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 to a fourth-place finish with a 2.98 GAA and 3-2 record. He most recently helped Team Canada clinch a series victory over Russia in the 2012 Canada-Russia Challenge.

His older brother P.K. Subban is a defenseman with the Montreal Canadiens.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
