The Bruins have signed goalie Malcolm Subban to a three-year, entry-level contract. Subban was the team’s first-round pick in the 2012 draft.
The 18-year-old Subban, younger brother of Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, is currently participating in training camp with Belleville, his OHL team. Subban will remain with Belleville until the Bruins start training camp, which is currently scheduled for Sept. 21. According to GM Peter Chiarelli, NHL teams will be allowed to extract some, if not all, of their drafted players from their junior clubs to attend camp.
Subban would have participated in a rookie tournament in Florida starting on Sept. 14. The Bruins were scheduled to play in the four-team tournament with Florida, Tampa Bay, and Nashville. That tournament has been canceled.
Regardless of whether he attends Bruins camp, Subban will play for Belleville in 2012-13. Subban is not eligible to play for Providence.
