Bruins general manager Don Sweeney took care of both of the Black and Gold’s restricted free agent goaltenders Friday, signing Zane McIntyre and Malcolm Subban to identical two-year, two-way contracts worth $650,000 at the NHL level.

The 24-year-old McIntyre appeared in 31 games for the P-Bruins this past season, with a 21-6-1 record, and with an AHL-best .930 save percentage and a 2.03 goals against average (second-best in the AHL). McIntyre then went 8-7 with a .907 save percentage in 16 Calder Cup Playoff contests for the P-Bruins, who fell in the conference finals.

McIntyre, a sixth-round draft choice of the club back in 2010 (165th overall), also skated in eight NHL contests for the Big B’s this past season (and in the worst scenarios possible), going 0-4-1 and with a 3.97 goals against average and .858 save percentage.

Subban, meanwhile, appeared in 32 games for the P-Bruins during the 2016-17 season, posting an 11-14-1 record, along with a 2.41 goals against average and a .917 save percentage. Over his four-year AHL career, the 23-year-old Subban has manned the pipes for 127 games, posting a record of 56-45-15, and with a .918 save percentage.

The 24th overall pick from the 2012 NHL Draft, Subban has started two NHL games in his career and finished neither, with six goals on 22 shots against.

With McIntyre and Subban re-signed, the Bruins now have five goaltenders signed in their organization, with Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin at the NHL level in front of McIntyre and Subban, and with Daniel Vladar expected to man the pipes in the ECHL.

Their re-signings also mean that the Bruins have just three restricted free agents left to ink to new deals in Austin Czarnik, David Pastrnak, and Ryan Spooner (arbitration).
