Bruins Take Goaltender Malcolm Subban at 2012 NHL Draft

Malcolm Subban

With their first round pick, you would think the Bruins would look for a goal-scoring forward with size to help a mediocre power play. They could also pick up a defenseman that could log on a solid amount of ice time. That was not the case, though, come late in the first round of the draft.

With all of the off ice issues regarding Tim Thomas taking the year off, it left a gap at a spot the Bruins have been solid at for a long time: the goaltending position. They decided to take arguably the best Tender’ in the draft: Malcolm Subban, or as most people know him as P.K.’s brother.

With Tuuka Rask a very capable starter and Anton Khudobin, who seems to be a steady backup, most people would question the pick. What I see though is not a good pick, but the right pick or a smart pick. This ensures them a great backup for Tuukka Rask, to say the least. Heck, with Malcolm’s size and athleticism, he might be capable of taking the starting job.

What I see in this pick is a guy who has the potential to be a great goaltender in the highest level of hockey on the planet.

Malcolm will spend one more year in the world juniors then it’s off to Boston. Great move Peter Chiarelli.
