Boston Bruins & Jeremy Swayman Set Arbitration Filings

The Boston Bruins and Jeremy Swayman have set their arbitration filings. The Bruins have put down a $2 million filing, while Swayman is asking for $4.8 million.

Swayman's hearing date is July 30, and we will then find out what his salary for the 2023-24 season will be.

Swayman just put together an excellent season for the Bruins in 2023-24, and that could help his chances a lot if we reach his arbitration date without a new deal. In 37 appearances on the campaign, the 24-year-old put together a 24-6-4 record, a 2.27 goals-against average, and a .920 save percentage. With that, he won the William M. Jennings Trophy alongside teammate Linus Ullmark. 

After a year like this, it would be shocking to see Swayman earn only $2 million in arbitration. However, his $4.8 million asking price is also a bit high, so we could see a scenario where the arbitrator meets them halfway.

We will need to wait and see what happens with Swayman from here, but it is clear that the young goalie and the Bruins are far apart with their prices.
