History

2010-11: Jordan Subban was an assistant captain and skated in 68 games for the Toronto Marboros minor midget AAA team. He scored 21 goals with 43 assists and had 64 penalty minutes. In four games at the OHL Cup he scored 1 goal with 1 assist and had 4 penalty minutes. Subban played for Team Ontario at the Canada Winter Games; scoring 4 goals with 8 penalty minutes in six games. He was selected by Belleville in the first round (fifth overall) of the 2011 OHL Priority Draft.

2011-12: Subban played 55 games for the Belleville Bulls in his first OHL season and played for Canada Ontario at the 2012 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He scored 5 goals with 15 assists and was -22 with 31 penalty minutes during the OHL regular season. Belleville finished second in the East Division. Subban played in 5 of 6 games during the first round playoff series with Ottawa and was -1 with no points and 4 penalty minutes. Playing for the gold medal-winning Canada Ontario squad at the WHC he scored 1 goal with 2 assists and had 6 penalty minutes in six games.

2012-13: Subban was the leading scorer amongst defensemen for the Belleville Bulls in his second season after representing Canada at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial U18 Tournament in August. He had 1 assist in five games as Canada captured the gold medal in the tournament. Subban scored 15 goals with 36 assists and was plus-22 with 47 penalty minutes; skating in all 68 games for the Bulls. Belleville finished first in the East Division and reached the playoff semifinals. Subban scored 2 goals with 3 assists and was +10 with 20 penalty minutes in 17 playoff games. Ranked 81st amongst North American skaters in Central Scouting's mid-term rankings, Subban was ranked 55th in the final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis

Subban has received a lot of attention in this league -- and most definitely will at the NHL Draft -- simply due to his name. With older brothers P.K. and Malcolm being second- and first-round selections, respectively, he has a lot to live up to.

While Subban likely will be drafted in the third or fourth round, he just doesn’t have the same upside as his brothers. He’s got a good, heavy shot and solid skating abilities, but is shorter than what’s usually desired. Subban also needs to work on his defensive responsibilities.

What the youngest Subban brother brings to the table is intelligence – he named to the OHL’s Scholastic Team this year. He transfers that intelligence on the ice, where he plays a solid, smart offensive game.

 

Future

Subban will return to the Bellewille Bulls in the OHL, where he will be counted on to continue leading Bulls' defensemen in scoring. In addition, Canucks' management will ensure that his training continues in the defensive aspects of the game.

Since the NHL Draft was instituted in 1969, the Ontario Hockey League has proven to be the richest source of future talent in the world. And with six of the previous seven first-overall selections coming from the middle Canadian Hockey League association, there was no reason to believe that the province of Ontario (and parts of Michigan and Pennsylvania) wouldn’t be fertile soil again for the next generation of professionals.

The Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey would be the setting for the Vancouver Canucks to leave an indelible mark, not just in regards to their own draft and future, but to the host city and their hockey fortunes as well.

If the Canadian Hockey League considers itself the best road to the NHL, then the Ontario Hockey League can lay claim to being the CHL’s most popular route. Having provided five of the last six first-overall draft picks, it’s likely that players coming out of the OHL will have their names called early and often at the 2013 NHL Draft that will take place in Newark, NJ in late June.

Cassels. Domi. Mantha. Rychel. They are names that many hockey fans are familiar with, the names of former NHL players. But those names also represent a new wave of talent, still on the way to hopefully making an impact in the pro ranks.

The names on the back of the jersey may be the same, but each of the talented Subban brothers brings something different to the table. What they share, however, is an unwavering support for each other — and that support, along with two drafts’ worth of experience, is something that defenseman Jordan Subban holds dear.
