Talent Analysis

The young blueliner's offensive abilities are well documented, but to progress within the organization's ranks he needs to continue to refine his play within his own end. Last season he showed a willingness to improve in that regard and he has all the tools to be a solid contributor to the club's organization.

 

Future

Subban has made the jump to the NHL and has established himself as one of the top defenders in the game.
