    Malcolm Subban to play in the AHL.

    Per WEEI

    WILMINGTON ó Bruins assistant general manager Don Sweeney said after the open of the teamís development camp Wednesday that Malcolm Subban is expected to go pro this coming season. The 19-year-old goalie, whom the Bruins chose in the first round of the 2012 draft, will play in the AHL for at least a couple of seasons before he would be considered for a job in Boston.

    Subban spent the last four seasons playing for the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League. His older brother P.K. played for the Bulls prior to him, and his younger brother Jordan, who was drafted by the Canucks this year, currently plays for Belleville.

    Last season was Subbanís best in the OHL, as he went 29-11-4 for the Bulls with a 2.14 goals-against average, .934 save percentage and five shutouts.

    During press conference, Sweeney said they expect Malcolm Subban to turn pro next season (join P-Bruins); Anthony Camara as well
    With Boston signing Johnson to potentially back-up Rask, it'll be interesting to see what happens in PRO between Subban & Svedberg

    Love this move. The only bad thing about the move is that one of (Subban or Svedberg) aren't going to be playing regularly.

    I'm hoping Svedberg just ultimately beats out Johnson during camp and Johnson becomes p's backup. Cuz honestly he's worse than the two who are planned to be in the ahl. I've watched Johnson play In Hartford for a few seasons and nothing about him is great

    Johnson's cap hit (what 600k?) and his decent numbers (though limited) at the NHL level is probably going to give him the edge at the backup goalie spot, assuming Svedberg doesn't come in and tear it up to the point they can't send him down. I think Johnson could succeed as a backup goalie here for one year since the Bruins defense is very good. I'm sure there is something the Bruins like in him, or i doubt they'd be comfortable trusting him with a backup job.

    Looking forward to seeing him play when he comes up to Maine to play the Pirates.

    Rask for the next 8 seasons, Svedberg was the best goalie in the AHL this year, Subban was the best goalie in the OHL this year.....

    Yeah, we're set in goal for a LONG time. One of Subban/Svedberg can be used as trade bait too down the road.

    Svedberg will beat out Johnson in camp too, IMO.
