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 [1].

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.
