Don Sweeney has identified his goaltenders of the future, or we should say Tuukka Rask’s backups of the future, by re-signing a pair of young net minders on Friday.

The Bruins have just announced that they have signed both Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban to two-year, two way contract extensions.  The deals are identical with both players making $650,000 over each of the next two seasons.

Both players have posted good numbers with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League, but have struggled in their limited chances at the National Hockey League level.

Subban has a 2.40 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in 127 AHL games, but has given up six goals on just 22 shots in his two NHL starts.  In 62 career games with the P-Bruins, McIntyre has a 2.35 GAA and a .914 save %.  The 24-year-old appeared in eight games for the Bruins last year (three starts) and posted a .858 save percentage.
