Bruins GM: 'I'm not trading Malcolm Subban' | 03/27/2013 5:04 PM
NewsBoston GM Peter Chiarelli isn't interested in moving prospect Malcolm Subban.
ImpactThe Bruins selected him in the first round, 24th overall, in the 2012 draft and his name has come up as a possible trade piece in rumored trades involving Calgary's Jarome Iginla. "I can tell you this: I'm not trading Malcolm Subban," Chiarelli told 98.5 The Sports Hub. "He's young. He's a very good goalie prospect and I see him in our future and being a big part of our future. We've got some goalie depth, but I'm telling you I'm not trading Malcolm Subban. There are other players, and we've got a fairly well-stocked cupboard of prospects, but I'm not trading Malcolm Subban."
Subban relieves Binnington in WJC loss | 01/05/2013 10:37 AM
NewsMalclolm Subban was saddled with the loss in Canada's 6-5 overtime defeat at the hands of the Russians at the World Junior Championships.
ImpactSubban relieved starter Jordan Binnington at the 7:54 mark of the first period after the latter allowed three goals on only five shots. Binnington had replaced Subban as the team's starter following Subban's less than stellar performance against the Americans on Thursday. Although it can't be said that Canada's shaky goaltending was the only reason the team did not win a medal for the first time in 14 years, it sure was a primary factor.
Subban shouldn't be blamed for Canada's loss | 01/03/2013 6:25 PM
NewsMalcolm Subban was pulled after allowing four goals on 16 shots during his two periods of work in Thursday's semifinal loss to the United States.
ImpactHe will receive criticism for being decisively outplayed by American counterpart John Gibson in the match, but the loss cannot be solely placed on his shoulders. "I thought we left him out to dry," said Canada coach Steve Spott. "The goals they scored were quality goals. I was not disappointed with Malcolm at all." Team USA was simply put the better and more prepared squad. They outworked the favored Canadians up and down the ice. Team Canada was victimized for turning the puck over several times in the game and they were caught flat-footed frequently as well. They'll need to get back to playing with emotion and intelligence when they meet Russia for a chance at bronze on Saturday.
Spott's support motivates Malcolm Subban | 01/01/2013 1:57 PM
NewsMalcolm Subban appreciates the confidence that Team Canada coach Steve Spott has displayed in him during the World Junior Championship.
Impact"He showed he has a lot of faith in me and I really don't want to let him down," said Subban following Monday's win over Russia. "I'm trying my hardest to play well and hopefully I can keep that up for the rest of tournament." Subban didn't have a good selection camp and his work in the pre-tournament didn't inspire confidence either, but Spott has handed him the reigns so far and the move has paid off. Subban posted four wins and no losses in the preliminary round, to go with a 2.00 goals-against average. He has also stopped 107 of the 115 shots thrown his way.
