Update: Malcolm Subban out at least eight weeks with larynx fracture

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Good news on the overall-health front - Malcolm Subban is due to make a full recovery from his larynx fracture. Less good news: he'll be out for a while.

From the Bruins:

"Malcolm underwent successful surgery on February 8 at Mass Eye & Ear Hospital in Boston to repair his larynx fracture. He is doing well and has been released from the hospital. While there is no definitive timetable for his return at this time, he is expected to be out a minimum of eight weeks."

Eight weeks puts him right mid-April, when the P-Bruins will either be pushing for a playoff spot or will be preparing to make a playoff run. They're in sixth in the East right now. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's unlikely Subban sees game action again before training camp, which is incredibly unfortunate for the young goaltender. Hopefully I'm wrong and we see him in a P-Bruins uniform again in two months.
