Top Malcolm Subban News

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Full practice participant

    Subban (lower body) was a full practice participant with AHL Rochester on Tuesday.

    Subban's return to health will clear the way for him to serve as an emergency depth option should his services be needed in Buffalo. Until then, the veteran netminder will ply his trade in the minors with the Americans.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Dealing with lower-body issue

    Subban is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks with a lower-body injury.

    Subban likely would have been the netminder the Sabres would have turned to if Craig Anderson or Eric Comrie went down with an injury at some point during the first month of the season, but that obviously will no longer be the case due to this injury, making Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen the next man in line for a potential call-up.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Cut Sunday

    Subban was placed on waivers Sunday for the purpose of assignment to AHL Rochester, per Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News.

    If he clears waivers, Subban will open the season third on Buffalo's goaltending depth chart behind Craig Anderson and Eric Comrie. Subban was 0-2-1 with an .871 save percentage in four appearances with the Sabres last season.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Healthy for training camp

    Subban (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, per CapFriendly.

    Subban was sidelined from mid-January through the end of last season, but he was deemed healthy enough to sign a two-way deal in July. The 28-year-old goalie isn't expected to begin the year with the Sabres, as Craig Anderson and Eric Comrie are expected to be the goalie duo at the NHL level. Subban will likely be exposed to waivers in hopes of him clearing and spending much of the year at AHL Rochester.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Inks new deal

    Subban (upper body) signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $850,000 with the Sabres on Tuesday.

    Subban will likely have a chance to compete for the backup job behind Craig Anderson in 2022-23. Subban made only four appearances with the Sabres in 2021-22, giving up 17 goals on 132 shots. He had surgery in January, so it's unclear if the 28-year-old will be fully healthy at the start of training camp.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Officially on injured reserve

    Subban (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Subban isn't expected to play again this season, so this move opens up a roster spot for the Sabres. The 28-year-old is set to be a free agent this offseason, though he has yet to establish himself at the NHL level on a regular basis.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Not expected back this season

    Subban has undergone surgery to address his upper-body injury and is expected to miss the rest of the 2021-22 campaign.

    Subban drew into just four games with the Sabres before suffering his season-ending injury, going 0-2-1 while posting an ugly 4.86 GAA and .871 save percentage over that span. Subban is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he may need to settle for a two-way contract considering he's been lackluster at best with stops in Boston, Vegas, Chicago and Buffalo through the first eight years of his career.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Considered month-to-month

    Subban is considered month-to-month with an upper-body injury.

    Given the expected length of Subban's absence, the 28-year-old netminder will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve in the coming days. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen is also considered week-to-week with a lower-body injury after both goaltenders were injured in Tuesday's loss to the Lightning, so the Sabres are now down to Aaron Dell in terms of healthy goaltenders on their roster. Another update on Subban, who's gone 0-2-1 while posting a disastrous 4.86 GAA through four appearances this season, should surface once he's cleared to resume skating.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Facing Islanders

    Subban will guard the road goal Thursday versus the Islanders, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Subban has allowed nine goals on 73 shots in his two appearances for the Sabres this year. Despite those shaky numbers, he has a somewhat favorable matchup against the Islanders, who are averaging just 2.19 goals per game this season.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Struggles in loss to Isles

    Subban surrendered four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.

    Buffalo actually finished with a 37-32 edge in shots, but Semyon Varlamov stood tall in New York's net, while Subban failed to do the same for the Sabres. He's 0-2-1 with a dreadful 4.56 GAA and .876 save percentage, so Subban's unlikely to see many starts for the Sabres outside of back-to-back situations unless his play picks up considerably.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Heroic effort in OT loss

    Subban made 45 saves in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.

    The 27-year-old was the main reason the Sabres even got a point out of this one, as Subban was fantastic over the final part of regulation after the Pens had grabbed a 2-0 lead early in the second period before Jeff Carter was finally able to get another puck past him in OT. Subban has taken a back seat to rookie Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen since joining Buffalo in early December largely due to a lower-body injury suffered in his first appearance for the club, but performances like this could earn him more playing time now that he's healthy.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Facing Penguins on Friday

    Subban will be between the pipes Friday in Pittsburgh.

    Subban has played in just one game at the top level this year, allowing a whopping six goals on 25 shots in a 6-2 loss to Carolina on Dec. 4. He hasn't been great with AHL Rockford this season, either, going 2-2-1 with a 3.38 GAA and .893 save percentage. As such, Subban likely makes for a risky crease play Friday.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Taken off IR

    Subban (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday.

    Subban has appeared in just one NHL game this season and gave up six goals on 25 shots in his Sabres debut. He'll serve as the backup for Tuesday's tilt against the Jets behind Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Set to start during back-to-back

    Subban (lower body) is slated to start against either Minnesota or Pittsburgh on Thursday or Friday, respectively, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.

    Subban was shelled in his only outing this season to the tune of six goals allowed on 25 shots to the Hurricanes. Subban's return to action will likely see both Dustin Tokarski (COVID-19 protocols) and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen reassigned to the minors while Subban splits the workload with Aaron Dell.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Lands on injured reserve

    Subban (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per CapFriendly.

    Subban has already missed enough time to be eligible for activation at any time going forward. He's expected to return to practice soon, but it's unclear how much time he'll need before he can get back in a game.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Won't play Saturday

    Subban (lower body) won't play Saturday versus the Capitals but should be a full participant in the Sabres' next practice, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.

    Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen will start Saturday's contest. Subban has been out since he was hurt in last Saturday's loss to the Hurricanes, but his impending return to practice is a step in the right direction.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Could start Saturday

    Head coach Don Granato said Subban (lower body) practiced Friday and may be available to play Saturday against Washington.

    Subban suffered the injury against Carolina on Dec. 4, when he allowed six goals on 25 shots in his 2021 debut. It's unclear where the 27-year-old currently stands on Buffalo's goalie depth chart, but he'll certainly need to improve upon his debut if he's to get substantial playing time.

  • Sabres' Malcolm Subban: Sidelined with lower-body issue

    Subban (lower body) won't be in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Anaheim, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.

    Subban exited his Sabres debut Saturday versus Carolina in the third period after suffering a lower-body injury. Buffalo has yet to release an expected timetable for Subban's return, but for now, Aaron Dell and Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen will shoulder the load in goal for the Sabres.
