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.
