Boston Bruins goaltender Malcolm Subban will be out of action for a minimum of eight weeks.

The team issued a update on Subban, who sustained a fractured larynx after being struck in the throat with a puck during pregame warmups on Saturday.

"Malcolm underwent successful surgery on February 8 at Mass Eye & Ear Hospital in Boston to repair his larynx fracture. He is doing well and has been released from the hospital. While there is no definitive timetable for his return at this time, he is expected to be out a minimum of eight weeks."

The 22-year-old Subban, the brother of Montreal Canadiens All-Star defenceman P.K. Subban, is 14-8-5 in 27 games with the Bruins' AHL team this season. He has a 2.44 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.

The Toronto native had recently been called up to the Bruins after regular backup Jonas Gustavsson missed time last week with an elevated heart rate.
