Bruins Rumors: Linus Ullmark Named as Prime Trade Candidate

Boston Bruins netminder has made it clear he'd prefer stay in Boston, however there's growing speculation management may once again approaching their netminder to waive his no-trade clause.

Ullmark was approached in-season during the 2023-24 campaign, prior to the March 9 trade deadline. The team had a deal in place with the Los Angeles Kings, however Ullmark was not open to the move and wanted to stay with the Bruins.

Recently, hockey insider Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff listed Ullmark as #2 on his offseason trade target list. Seravalli mentioned there could be more than just the Kings circling back this summer:

And Ullmark will be one of the hottest commodities on the trade market over the next five weeks. In addition to the Kings, keep an eye on the Sens. Ullmark reminded us his ‘no-trade’ list is in place for a reason, though.

The 30-year-old Ullmark is signed for next season at $5 million against the cap and owns a 15-team no-trade clause this offseason.

The Bruins netminder posted a .915 Sv.% in 40 games during the regular season and unfortunately couldn't keep up the same pace during the playoffs, with a .886 Sv.% to show for in three appearances. Ullmark's career postseason numbers are quite worrisome and he hasn't been able to translate regular season success into playoff wins.
