Boston Bruins Sign Zane McIntyre, Malcolm Subban to Two-Way Contracts

In what has been a mostly uneventful offseason, the Boston Bruins re-signed two of their own young players to contracts on Friday afternoon.

The B’s announced the signings of goalies Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban to two-year, two-way contracts that are worth $650,000 at the NHL level.

The duo of netminders will likely slot behind starting goalie Tuukka Rask and backup Anton Khudobin in the Bruins roster, but as witnessed last season, there is always a need for depth at that position.

McIntyre is coming off a strong season with the Providence Bruins last year, as he led the AHL in save percentage (.930) and second in goals against average (2.03 GAA).  The 24-year-old compiled a stellar 21-6-1 record in 31 games with Providence, and was selected to play in the 2017 AHL All-Star Game.  McIntyre was also named as a Second-Team All-Star last year, and made his NHL debut on October 25th against the Minnesota Wild.  McIntyre was 0-4-1 in eight games in Boston last season, posting a 3.97 GAA and a .858 save percentage.

McIntyre was a sixth-round pick (#165 overall) of the Bruins in the 2010 NHL Draft.  He played for three seasons with the Fargo Force of the USHL before starring with the University of North Dakota from 2012-15.  He was a Hobey Baker finalist for collegiate player of the year in 2015, and won the Mike Richter Award for most outstanding goaltender in Division I NCAA men’s ice hockey.

Subban, who was a first-round pick (24th overall) by the B’s in 2012, was 11-14-6 with a 2.41 GAA and a .917 save percentage with Providence last season.  He made his only start in Boston on October 25th (where he was relieved between the pipes by McIntyre), and made his NHL debut for the B’s on February 20, 2015 against the St. Louis Blues.

Subban, who is the younger brother of Nashville’s P.K. Subban, played for Canada’s National Men’s Under-18 Team at the 2011 IIHF World-Under 18 Championship, and spent four seasons in the OHL with the Belleville Bulls.

My name is Adam Belue, I'm from Fall River, MA, and I'm a sports fanatic.  I'll watch and write about just about any and every sport, even the fringe ones that aren't really sports like bowling, poker, and ultimate frisbee.  I'm a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and a self-proclaimed New England Patriots hater (and proud of it!)... which makes my job in a sporting goods store quite interesting.  I'm a big fan of the other local teams (Bruins, Red Sox, and Celtics), along with the Alabama Crimson Tide and college football as a whole.  I may be a bit obsessed (or a lot obsessed) with Taylor Swift, and I've seen her in concert four times so far... some of the best times I've had by the way her concerts are quite the experience!  I'm also a huge tennis fan, and have played the sport for a good majority of my life.  I wish more people watched and appreciated tennis.  I'm currently a part of the Boston Bruins and Boston Red Sox Beat Team on CLNS Radio, and post a weekly fantasy football and college football column during the season.
