BOSTON -- Goaltender Malcolm Subban, the Bruins' first-round draft choice, signed a three-year contract with the team on Thursday.
Subban, 18, a 6-foot-1, 188-pounder from Rexdale, Ontario -- the younger brother of Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban -- was drafted 24th overall. He spent 2011-12 with the Ontario Hockey Leagues Belleville Bulls, posting a 2.50 goals-against average and .923 save
percentage, with a 25-14 record and three shutouts in 39 games. He ranked fourth among OHL goalies in goals-against average and fifth in save percentage.
