Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban is in stable condition but will be out indefinitely after getting hit in the throat by a puck during warmups of Saturday'€™s Providence Bruins game. In a statement released by the team, the Bruins said that Subban suffered a fractured larynx. Subban, the Bruins'€™ first-round pick in 2012, was suffered the injury prior to the P-Bruins'€™ contest in Portland, Maine, at which point he was taken to Maine Medical Center. Per the Bruins'€™ statement, he was taken to Mass General Hospital for further evaluation and is in stable condition. Though there'€™s no ideal time for such a frightening injury, Subban'€™s play of late and the Bruins'€™ goaltending situation make the timing of the injury worse. Subban had a .929 save percentage in his nine games previous to the injury. The Bruins had recalled Subban amid health concerns for Boston backup Jonas Gustavsson, who has since returned from an elevated heart rate. The 22-year-old Toronto native figures to be Tuukka Rask'€™s backup next season, though that could have been accelerated by injuries at the NHL level this season. Gustavsson said after coming off IR that he doesn't expect his heart to be a concern for the rest of the season.
