The Vegas Golden Knights claimed goaltender Malcolm Subban off waivers from the Boston Bruins on Tuesday.

Selected 24th overall in 2012, Subban appeared in only two games with the Bruins, recording a save percentage of .727 in 62 minutes of play. He's posted a .918 save percentage in 127 AHL appearances and put in a strong showing at training camp, but was beat out by Anton Khudobin for the right to serve as backup to Tuukka Rask.

The Golden Knights have Marc-Andre Fleury and Calvin Pickard penned in as the top options in net, meaning Subban will likely begin the season with the AHL's Chicago Wolves.

Subban is entering the final season of a two-year deal that carries a $650,000 cap hit.
