Report: Bruins getting calls about Malcolm Subban's trade availability

The Boston Bruins are seeking help up front, and appear to have a coveted trade chip in the form of goaltender Malcolm Subban.

According to Darren Dreger of TSN, general manager Peter Chiarelli is receiving plenty of phone calls to check on the prospect's availability. 

The Bruins, however, would have to be blown away by an offer in order to part with the promising goalie.

Dreger reports:

Well, teams are looking for goaltending. He's having a very good year in the American Hockey League with Providence. But you can call all you want, the Bruins are not interested in trading Malcolm Subban unless they get a very, very good young prospect or young player back in return. Again, this is a deal if Pete Chiarelli was going to seriously going to consider it, he'd consider it around draft time in the summer.

Subban, drafted 24th overall by the Bruins at the 2012 NHL Draft, has posted a record of 9-10-2 in the AHL this season, with a .921 save percentage.

While he doesn't appear to be in play leading up to the March 2 trade deadline, it's possible that Boston would revisit a trade scenario depending on how the rest of the season plays out.
