The Bruins have drafted goalie Malcolm Subban with the No. 24 pick. Subban is the younger brother of Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban.

“The rivalry’s just about to begin,” Subban said with a smile. “I don’t know if he’s going to like me too much. To be honest, I never really liked him too much.”

Malcolm Subban plays for Belleville of the OHL. In 39 games last year, Subban recorded a 2.50 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage. Subban had three shutouts. Younger brother Jordan Subban also plays for Belleville.

“I’d say he’s a hybrid,” Chiarelli said. “Very athletic. Probably technically, he needs a little bit of work. Very, very competitive. Searches for pucks in traffic. He’s big and strong. His lateral speed is tremendous.”
