Talent Analysis

Subban is the younger brother of Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban and Boston goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban. While his skill set does not appear to be on the elite level of his brothers and he is smaller than most NHL defensemen there are characteristics of his game that attract attention. An offensively-inclined defenseman with a heavy shot and solid skating abilities, he relishes the physical side of the game and is not afraid to compete with players who are much bigger in stature. As with many young defensemen who like to join the attack Subban is a work in progress when it comes to realizing his defensive responsibilities.

Signed a three-year entry-level contract in May 2015 and will suit up for the Utica Comets or Kalamazoo Wings for the 2015-16 season. Subban must improve and refine the defensive aspects of his game while continuing to be a solid offensive producer. Long term he projects as a good third pair defender with power play potential.

The Vancouver Canucks’ plan to get younger without going into a total rebuild is in full effect. Gone are veteran wingers Chris Higgins and Brandon Prust, waived and assigned to the farm in Utica. Taking up the extra minutes are youngsters such as Sven Baertschi and recently acquired Emerson Etem. Add in Bo Horvat, Jared McCann and Jake Virtanen and the Canucks have a very respectable group of forwards aged 23 or younger. With up and comers such as Brendan Gaunce and Brock Boeser knocking at the door, the Canucks seem to have most of the answers to their future needs developing in-house.
