Bruins' goalie plans don't involve rushing Subban

WILMINGTON, Mass. – As one of the top prospects for the Boston Bruins, Malcolm Subban watched the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Final with a rooting interest.

As a goaltender, Subban intensely watched the play of Bruins star Tuukka Rask throughout the run that came up two wins short with a six-game defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks in the last series of the season.

"I felt bad for him," Subban said of Rask after the first day on ice at the Bruins' seventh annual development camp Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena. "He played so well and he deserved a bit more, maybe the Conn Smythe or something. A Stanley Cup ring, obviously. But it's tough. Stuff happens like that, and, you know, a couple bad breaks and just like that it's over. So, you know, I don't think there's much else he could've done. It was just some bad luck if you watch the last few minutes. I thought he played really well; I thought the whole team played well."

Is it possible the last of the Reinhart brothers might be the first to go No. 1 at the NHL draft?

The odds are pretty good, according to preliminary reports. Sam Reinhart, a center with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League is part of a new group of prospects from around the globe hoping to make an impact prior to the 2014 NHL Draft, which will be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

As expected, the 6-foot-1, 186-pound right-shot forward has earned a spot on NHL Central Scouting's 2013-14 Futures List, which is comprised of players the League's scouting arm considers to possess first-, second- or third-round potential.

It was a banner year for top 2013 NHL Draft prospects starring overseas, with seven European skaters selected in the first round.

Heading that group was Finnish center Aleksander Barkov, who was chosen by the Florida Panthers with the No. 2 pick. The 2014 list of draft-eligible European prospects hopes to continue that success.

According to NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb, the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament, scheduled for Aug. 5-10 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, will offer a better insight into the top Europeans entering the 2013-14 season.

Strome could move to wing to stick with Islanders

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- With each passing day, forward Ryan Strome knows he's inching closer to realizing his dream of playing in the NHL.

Selected in the first round (No. 5) by the New York Islanders at the 2011 NHL Draft, Strome is coming off another successful season with the Niagara Ice Dogs of the Ontario Hockey League, when he had 34 goals, 60 assists and a plus-43 rating in 53 games. He had six points (four goals, two assists) in six games for Canada at the 2013 World Junior Championship.

Strome, who turns 20 Thursday, turned pro at the end of his fourth junior season when he joined the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League in April. Though Bridgeport fell short in its bid to qualify for the Calder Cup Playoffs, Strome had seven points (two goals, five assists) in 10 games. The adjustment went as smoothly as possible.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
