Boston Bruins Sign Former Sabres Goalie Linus Ullmark


The Boston Bruins were going to be heading into the NHL offseason needing to replace Tuukka Rask.  General Manager Don Sweeney looks like he has done just that by signing former Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark.

The deal was first reported by TSN’s Darren Dreger and Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman. 

Frank Seravalli of DailyFaceoff is reporting that Ullmark will get a four-year deal for $20 million. 

Ullmark has spent his entire career with the Sabres.  He started 20 games last season, going 9-6-3 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.63 GAA.  For his career, Ullmark has started 112 games with a 50-47-13 record, .912 save percentage and 2.78 GAA.

“We’ve made it very clear to (Ullmark’s agent) that we would like to see Linus as our No. 1 goalie,” said Sweeney.

The move to sign Ullmark comes on the heels of Rask becoming an unrestricted free agent and having undergone hip surgery this offseason.  There is a chance the Bruins will bring back Rask during the regular season following his surgery and rehab.  Until then the Bruins will seemingly go with Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman.

Following the announcement of the Ullmark signing, the Bruins traded goalie Dan Vladar to the Flames for a future third-round pick. 

The Bruins had a very busy first day of free agency upgrading their roster.  Ullmark is now the replacement between the pipes and Swayman, right now is his back up.  Sweeney has been aggressive and Bruins fans should be very pleased with the moves thus far.
