For the first time since 2002, the Bruins have used their first-round pick on a goaltender.
If that wasn’t enough of a surprise tonight, he’s also the brother of hated Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban.
Malcolm Subban will be joining the Bruins organization as Boston picked him 24th overall tonight at the 2012 NHL Draft in Pittsburgh. Subban was Central Scouting Services’ No. 1 ranked North American goaltender.
The 18-year-old played 39 games for Bellville of the Ontario Hockey League. He compiled a 2.50 goals-against average and .923 save percentage.
