Will Tuukka Rask return to the Bruins or play for another team?

NHL Trade Rumors are starting to circulate on teams asking about what goaltenders are available. Could Tuukka Rask be an option for another team besides the Boston Bruins?

Chris Johnston was on TSN Insiders Trading and stated, Rask could be an option for another team beside the Bruins. He’s been working out at their practice facility, doesn’t have a contract. Johnston reached out to his agent who said the goal for him is to play and to win.

Johnston went on to say, I think there is one team in his mind and his heart and that’s the Boston Bruins. The Bruins do have Linus Ullmark signed for another three years at a $5 million AVV. They could send down backup goalie Jeremy Swayman if Rask is willing to sign this year for salary around $1 million.

Rask was quoted in the summer saying, “I would say I’m not looking for a $7 million contract anymore,” he said. “I just like to help the team out. I feel like I’m a veteran goalie and there are some young guys coming in, so whatever I can do to help the guys out I will do it and end my career as a Bruin.

Rask has even left the door open to Team Finland for the Beijing Olympics.
