VEGAS (October 22, 2017) - Vegas Golden Knights General Manager George McPhee announced today, October 22, the following roster transaction: The team has placed goaltender Malcolm Subban on the injured reserve list (lower body). Subban is expected to miss approximately four weeks. The team is expected to make a goaltender recall following Sunday's Wolves game.
Subban posted a 2-0 record to go with a 2.06 goals-against-average in three NHL appearances with the Golden Knights. In 50:50 minutes of ice time against the Blues on Saturday, he stopped a career-best 37 of the 38 shots he faced before suffering a lower body injury in the third period.
"Injuries provide opportunities for others and that is the situation we have here," said General Manager George McPhee. "Our top two goaltenders are currently sidelined so we will now give our AHL goalies the chance to play in their absence. We felt Oscar Dansk performed well in relief on Saturday in his NHL debut."
