Bruins select goaltender Malcolm Subban with first-round pick
|06.22.12 at 10:24 pm ET|
Subban played for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League last year and was the top-ranked North American goaltending prospect by NHL Central Scouting. In the 2011-12 season with the Bulls, Subban recorded a 2.50 GAA and a .923 save percentage in 39 games played. The Rexdale, Ontario, native is 6-foot-1 and weighs 188 pounds.
Malcolm is the brother of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, who is a common antagonist for Boston fans in the Original Six rivalry. After Boston selected him, Malcolm did not shy away from the rivalry with his brother.
‘The rivalry’s just about to begin,’ Subban said, according to The Boston Globe. ‘I don’t know if he’s going to like me too much. To be honest, I never really liked him too much.’
