Golden Knights claim goaltender Malcolm Subban off waivers

The Golden Knights added a player to their roster Tuesday, claiming goaltender Malcolm Subban off waivers from the Boston Bruins.

The 6-foot-2-inch 220-pound goalie from Toronto was drafted by Boston in the first round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft at No. 24 overall. He is the younger brother of Nashville Predators defenseman P.K. Subban. His younger brother Jordan is in the Vancouver Canucks organization.

TSN in Canada was the first to report the transaction,. The Knights still have to get down to 23 players by 2 p.m. Tuesday when they turn their roster in to the NHL.
