Bruins’ Subban named Player of the Week

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Providence Bruins goaltender Malcolm Subban has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Jan. 25, 2015. 

Subban allowed just three goals on 91 shots in three starts last week, going 2-1-0 with a 0.99 goals-against average and a .967 save percentage. 

Subban began the week last Wednesday with a 32-save performance but was on the short end of a 1-0 decision at Hartford. On Friday, Subban stopped 26 of 27 shots to backstop the Bruins to a 2-1 overtime victory over Manchester, and on Saturday he made 30 saves and was named the game’s first star in Providence’s 2-1 road win at Springfield. 

A first-round selection, 24th overall, by the Boston Bruins in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Subban is 9-10-2 with a 2.47 GAA, a .921 save percentage and one shutout in 22 appearances for Providence in 2014-15. The 21-year-old Toronto native and younger brother of former AHL All-Star and NHL Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban led all AHL rookies with a 2.31 GAA last season, when he posted a 15-10-5 record in 33 games for the Bruins. 

In recognition of his achievement, Subban will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Bruins home game.
