New Contract Could Come For Bruins Jeremy Swayman "As Early As This Week"

Boston Hockey Now's Jimmy Murphy has been fueling anticipation among Boston Bruins fans with strong indications that a new contract for goaltender Jeremy Swayman could be just around the corner.

Swayman, who has been delivering stellar performances this season, has garnered attention as a potential Vezina Trophy candidate with impressive statistics, including a 10-2-4 record, a 2.17 GAA, and a .929 save percentage.

With his current contract set to expire, the timing aligns with the NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement, allowing players on expiring contracts to negotiate and sign extensions with their current teams starting on January 1.

Swayman's expressed desire to remain with the Bruins adds weight to the growing speculation that the team is working towards securing his future in Boston.

The Bruins also have a favorable financial position, boasting over $25 million in projected salary-cap space for the next season, which provides ample room to offer Swayman a significant raise from his current $3.47 million salary.

As the weeks progress, fans and analysts eagerly await official news regarding Jeremy Swayman's contract extension, which could potentially reshape the goaltending landscape for the Bruins, sparking further discussions about the future of his goalie partner, Linus Ullmark, and the team's aspirations for the season ahead.
