Malcolm Subban is on the move again, and the Chicago Blackhawks have traded Subban to the Buffalo Sabers for future considerations. This is a much-needed move for the organization. Rockford, Chicago’s AHL team, had a clog at the goaltending position. Rockford will now be free to split the net between Arvid Soderblom and Collin Delia, both young players Chicago wants to see grow.
Subban originally came to Chicago as a part of the Robbin Lehner trade on February 24th, 2020. This was an experiment that failed. Subban was a highly touted prospect, selected 24th overall in 2012 by the Boston Bruins. He has every intangible you’d want in a goalie from speed, flexibility, and good size but has failed to put this together at the NHL level. During his tenure with the Blackhawks, Subban would play in 17 games. Going 6-8-2 with a goal’s against of 3.20, and a save percentage of .900, finding his way on the AHL roster this season and now on to Buffalo, where Subban should get another chance to be an NHL starting goalie and live up to his draft selection. Subban is 27 years old, turning 28 in December. Best luck to Subban and his Buffalo endeavors.
Born and raised in Florida. My mom was raised on the south side of Chicago that's where my Blackhawks fandom comes from. I have played hockey my whole life, including losing in the National Championship game in 2010 with the Gulf Coast Flames. I love hockey and the NHL.
