Malcolm Subban is the first Goalie taken in the first round of the draft by the Bruins since Hannu Toivonen in 2002. He comes well-regarded, and not just due to pedigree. Malcolm managed to take over the job of Canadian Goalie for the U20 team last year, no mean feat - even for Canada. In the tournament he dazzled. Not quite enough to lift Boone Jenner to gold, but nothing seems to be enough for that.
He backstopped his team all the way to game 7 of the OHL Conference Finals, putting up fantastic numbers along the way. Subban also showed improvement from the year before, raising his save percentage from .923 to .934 while playing 7 more games.
Malcolm Subban is joining the Bruins this year, presumably planning on playing in Providence. However, with a good-enough training camp, it's entirely possible that he could steal the backup job from Chad Johnson, leaving Svedberg to play all the games in Providence and Chad Johnson to do whatever it is Chad Johnson does.
Malcolm Subban is looking like he's got a bright future, and of course will be integral to convincing all of the Subbans to sign in Boston. Can't wait to see what he does in the big times.

So yeah, we're all varying levels of excited here. Well except for Sarah and ecozens, but the rest of us think he will be a part of the Bruins going forward. Nevermind that he's a first-round pick and might go the way of Tyler Seguin, Zach Hamill, Joe Colborne, Phil Kessel, Matt Lashoff, Mark Stuart, Hannu Toivonen, and likely Jordan Caron at some point soon. We've still got Hamilton around, darnit! Anyhow, here's a tribute/highlight video for y'all:
