Boston Bruins goalie prospect Malcolm Subban was dressed and prepared to compete against the Portland Pirates Saturday night – that is until he suffered a scary injury in the warmups.
While facing some pucks in the warmups, he caught a puck up-high and in the throat, which resulted in Subban skating off the ice immediately. Shortly after, he was rushed to a local hospital, where he stayed for the remainder of the night.
It was later announced that Subban has suffered from a fractured larynx.
On Sunday, the Boston Bruins gave an update on Subban’s condition:
“Malcolm Subban was struck in the throat with a puck Saturday night during pregame warmups. He was transported to Maine Medical Center and was diagnosed with a fractured larynx. He stayed overnight at Maine Medical Center and was transported to Mass General Hospital on Sunday for further evaluation. He is in stable condition and will be sidelined indefinitely. The team will provide additional details when they become available.”
We’ll keep you updated when more information is available, but we are hoping for a speedy recovery for Subban.
