Bruins announce entry-level deal for Malcolm Subban

The Bruins announced Thursday that they have signed first-round pick Malcolm Subban to a three-year entry-level contract.
The deal will not begin until Subban turns pro, something that the 18-year-old netminder figures to be a ways away from doing. Given that goaltenders take longer to develop, it could be three or four years until Subban reaches the NHL.
Subban, the brother of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and top prospect (and Belleville Bulls teammate) Jordan Subban, had a 2.50 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 39 regular-season OHL games last season. He was selected 24th overall by the Bruins in June’s draft.
