Subban went 8-10-2 with a 2.93 goals-against average, a .902 save percentage and one shutout in 21 games (20 starts) with the Golden Knights last season. He did not play in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Claimed off waivers from the Boston Bruins by Vegas on Oct. 3, 2017, Subban set NHL career bests with 13 wins and a 2.68 GAA in 22 games (19 starts) in 2017-18 to help the Golden Knights advance to the Stanley Cup Final, when they lost to the Washington Capitals.

Selected by the Bruins in the first round (No. 24) in the 2012 NHL Draft, Subban is 21-16-4 with a 2.88 GAA, a .903 save percentage and one shutout in 45 games (41 starts) with the Golden Knights and Bruins.

He is the brother of New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban.
