Subban was handed over to Sabers for future observation.
Subban has played five games with the Rockford Ice Hogs in the AHL this season. He spent the 2020-2021 season with the Blackhawks. He has 82 games of experience on the Betman Tour, a 36-31-8 record, averaging 3.02 against goals and a .899 save rate.
The Sabers have struggled to win in recent weeks and goaltending performance has been central to concerns. Former Montreal Canadians Dustin Tokarsky has a regular 4-5-3 record as well as an average of 3.28 and a .903 rate. Behind him, Aaron Dell’s performance is a disaster.
Craig Anderson did well early in the season, but is currently out with an injury. If he went to Florida with his teammates, he would not have trained with them yet. Hence his return was not uninterrupted.
