Boston Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin is expected to miss approximately three weeks with an upper-body injury, and Malcolm Subban will make his second NHL start when the Bruins host the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; NESN, FS-N, FS-WI, NHL.TV).

Khudobin, 30, is 0-2-0 with a 4.10 goals-against average and .849 save percentage this season.

Subban, 22, was recalled on an emergency basis from Providence of the American Hockey League on Monday after the Bruins No. 1 goaltender, Tuukka Rask, missed Boston's 4-2 loss against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday with an undisclosed injury.

Subban made his NHL debut two seasons ago, when he gave up three goals on six shots in a 6-3 loss against the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 20, 2015.

On Tuesday, the Bruins recalled goaltender Zane McIntyre on an emergency basis from Providence to back up Khudobin.

In addition, center David Backes will not play against the Wild, and is out day to day with "a minor issue," Bruins coach Claude Julien said at the morning skate Tuesday.

Defenseman Adam McQuaid will make his season debut after missing the Bruins' first five games this season with an upper-body injury.
