While P.K. Subban is playing an important role for the Canadiens in the Stanley Cup playoffs, his brother Malcolm was making his goaltending debut for Canada at the world under-18 championships in Dresden Germany.
The 16 year old stopped all 26 shots, including 14 in the third period, as Canada defeated the Czech Republic 5-0. The Czechs were coming off an upset win over Sweden.
During the regular season Subban, like his brother before him, plays for the Belleville Bulls of the OHL.
After the game Subban told Canadian Press, “I can’t wait until the next game. That game was so much fun, so much different than playing the league, playing for your country and a gold medal — it was an unbelievable feeling.”
Subban and company will play Finland on Saturday. They’ll also face Norway and Sweden in round-robin play before the start of the medal round.
