The Chicago Blackhawks traded goaltender Malcolm Subban to the Buffalo Sabres for future considerations, the team announced Thursday.

Subban, 27, has spent the early portion of the 2021-22 campaign with the AHL's Rockford IceHogs, where he's posted a .893 save percentage in five appearances. He spent time in the NHL last season, recording a .900 clip in 16 games.

Subban was a first-round pick of the Boston Bruins in 2012 and has made 82 career NHL appearances between Boston, Chicago, and the Vegas Golden Knights.

Buffalo has used Dustin Tokarski, Aaron Dell, and Craig Anderson in goal so far this season. Subban should get a chance to play as both Tokarski and Dell have struggled, while Anderson is battling an upper-body injury that's kept him out since Nov. 2.
