Canucks' Jordan Subban hopes to break out of brothers' shadows
Wed, 23 Jul 2014 08:41:50 +0000
Vancouver, BC, Canada (4E Sports) - Vancouver Canucks prospect Jordan Subban says he isn't bothered that the focus is more on his older brothers P.K. and Malcolm .
"I am used to it by now," Jordan said, adding most of the questions are about eldest brother P.K., a Norris Trophy-winning star of the Montreal Canadiens.
Meanwhile, middle brother Malcolm is coming off his first pro season as a goaltender with the Boston Bruins.
Jordan is described as a dynamic offensive defenseman with smooth skating and slick puck skills whose game is seen as more subtle and cerebral than P.K.
At 19, Jordan isn't old enough to play in the American Hockey League and isn't ready to crack the Canucks defensive lineup, but he is preparing physically for the transition to pro hockey after next season.
He is undersized at 5-foot-9, causing him to drop into the fourth round of the 2013 NHL Draft.
Jordan estimated he's added at least 10 pounds since being listed at 175 pounds at the draft.
"He's a lot stronger," said Canucks director of player development Stan Smyl. "He's growing and he has leaned out so much more since last year as a player."
