Boston Bruins goaltender Malcolm subban will miss a minimum of eight weeks after undergoing surgery on Feb. 8 to repair his fractured larynx, the team announced in a statement Thursday.
Subban, 22, was hospitalized after taking a puck in the throat during warm-ups before this past Saturday’s AHL game between the Providence Bruins and Portland Pirates.
The Bruins’ 2012 first-round pick is 14-8-5 with a .911 save percentage and 2.44 goals-against average in 27 games with Providence this season.
The brother of Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban has not appeared in an NHL game since his debut in 2014-15.
