The Bruins Have Signed Goalies Subban, McIntyre To Two-Way Contracts
Earlier today the Boston Bruins have announced that they have signed Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban to one-year, two-way contracts. This was a must sign as Providence would be without goalies if they did not.
Both Goalies have been signed for $650,000 at the NHL level. The two-way means that they will be allowed to bounce back forth between the NHL and AHL.
McIntyre who is only 24, played in 31 games for Providence. He finished the season with a 21-6-1 record, 2.06 goals against, and .930 save percentage. Zane was also selected to the AHL All-Star game and named to the AHL Second-Team All-Star.
He also appeared in eight games for the Bruins, posting a 0-4-1 record with 3.97 goals against. His record does not show it but he played well in Boston, he just had a terrible defense in front of him. Boston is notorious for not playing in front of their back-up.
In 2015 McIntyre had a 14-8-7 record with 2.68 goals against.
Subban who was a first round pick in 2012. Subban is a bit younger at 23 but has not developed as well. He did have a neck injury that set him back last year.
Playing in 32 games for Providence in the 2016-17 season, posting an 11-14-1 record. He finished with 2.41 goals against and a .917 save percentage. Since being in Providence Subban has played in 127 games with a record of 56-45-15.
Subban is not exactly the goalie people hoped he would be. The best he develops into is a solid back-up in the NHL.
