Linus Ullmark, Boston Bruins goalie, facing a potential trade
Could the Bruins trade Linus Ullmark to upgrade at center? Latest trade rumors and analysis.

The Boston Bruins are firmly entrenched as Stanley Cup contenders, but as the NHL trade deadline approaches, the focus shifts to whether GM Don Sweeney will make a move to bolster an already strong roster. With limited draft capital, one potential trade chip has emerged: star goaltender Linus Ullmark.

Elliotte Friedman has reported that teams are expressing interest in Ullmark. The Swedish netminder’s stellar play over the past three seasons, combined with a very team-friendly $5 million cap hit through next year, makes him an incredibly attractive target. However, Ullmark does have a 16-team no-trade list, adding a layer of complexity.

Bruins Seeking Second-Line Center, Could Linus Ullmark Be Moved?

The Bruins find themselves in a unique position. Jeremy Swayman has proven to be an NHL-caliber goaltender. The idea of parting with Ullmark raises the question: is it better to have two top-notch goalies for a deep playoff run, or to leverage one for immediate roster upgrades?

The presumed target for the Bruins is a second-line center. A dynamic center to slot in behind Pavel Zacha would significantly improve their chances of finally capturing that elusive Stanley Cup since 2011.
