Rexdale’s Subban brothers wrapped up spectacular regular seasons with the Ontario Hockey League’s Belleville Bulls and both are hoping that momentum will carry into a winning post-season.
Malcolm Subban, who will turn 20 in December, is a highly touted goaltender, taken by the Boston Bruins in the first round (24th) of the 2012 draft. And he more than lived up to that billing, finishing the regular season as the OHL’s top goaltender in both goals against average per game (2.14) as well as save percentage (.934).
And so far in three post-season games against the Mississauga Steelheads, he’s only let in four goals while his team has scored 13. Belleville could only translate that into two wins, however, winning the first two games 8-1 and 4-1 while dropping the third game 2-1 in Mississauga on Sunday. The two teams hook up again for game four in Mississauga tonight (Tuesday), 7 p.m.
Jordan Subban, meanwhile, who is eligible for the NHL draft this year, in his second year with the team, was the league’s sixth highest scoring defenceman with 51 points (15 goals and 36 assists). He turned 18 March 3.
Their brother, P.K. Subban, 23, is also not doing bad with the Montreal Canadiens. He’s the National Hockey League’s third highest scoring defenceman with 22 points (9 goals, 13 assists) in 25 games.
Their father, Karl Subban, is principal of Claireville Junior School in Etobicoke.
