Canadian team emerges as frontrunner to acquire Boston Bruins' Linus Ullmark

A Canadian team emerged as frontrunner to acquire the Boston Bruins' goaltender Linus Ullmark.

Yesterday, two goaltenders changed teams: Jacob Markstrom was traded from the Calgary Flames to the New Jersey Devils for Kevin Bahl and a 2025 first round pick, while Darcy Kuemper was traded to the Los Angeles Kings by the Washington Capitals for Pierre-Luc Dubois.

It looks like another trade could go down soon, as the Ottawa Senators are reportedly pushing to get the 2022-23 Vezina Trophy winner Linus Ullmark.

After another rocky season, the Senators are once again looking to make big changes this summer. They've already hired a new GM, head coach and President, but it seems that they also plan on making a splash in the trade market.


The Senators' goalies Joonas Korpisalo and Anton Forsberg had a terrible year and ended at the 31st rank in the NHL. They seem poised to add a goaltender this summer.

The reporter Bruce Garrioch revealed that they may be the "last serious team in the mix" to get him:

"League sources say the Senators have circled back to the Bruins to see if there's a fit to acquire Ullmark to steady the club's struggling net and those talks have intensified," Garrioch wrote Wednesday.

Garrioch notes that Ottawa "may be the last serious team in the mix" for the Boston goalie, and added that Senators president of hockey operations and general manager Steve Staios "has been making a hard push to try to acquire Ullmark."



With Ullmark, the Sens would finally be in a position to have their breakout season.
