Blackhawks Trade Malcolm Subban to Buffalo Sabres for Future Considerations

Chicago Blackhawks

It was really only a matter of time before one of Collin Delia or Malcolm Subban was traded by the Blackhawks. On Thursday, following a 21-save performance in a win for the Rockford IceHogs, Chicago has traded Malcolm Subban to the Buffalo Sabres for future considerations.

Buffalo has desperately needed a goaltender this season and Subban has been toiling away in the AHL with the IceHogs after Marc-André Fleury and Kevin Lankinen were named the Blackhawks’ duo in the NHL. Subban was acquired by Chicago at the end of trade deadline in the 2019-20 season from the Vegas Golden Knights in the Robin Lehner trade.

In his time with the Blackhawks, Subban made 17 appearances and 14 starts in the NHL, with a 6-8-1 record, .900 save-percentage and a 3.20 GAA. He split time with Delia and Lankinen last season, but was edged out to begin this season. In the AHL, Subban made five starts for the IceHogs with a 2-2-1 record, including last night’s win over the Milwaukee Admirals. Subban totaled a .893 save-percentage and a 3.38 GAA in five appearances with Rockford this season.

This is the first trade made by interim General Manager Kyle Davidson since he took over for Stan Bowman.
