The Daily: Report says Ullmark Nixed Trade; Pens Makeover Coming



Linus Ullmark, boston bruins

Reports say Boston Bruins Vezina Trophy-winning goalie Linus Ullmark used his modified no-trade clause to nix a trade to a Western Conference team.

Boston Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy reported that the team was not the Los Angeles Kings, even though the Kings were aggressively pursuing a goalie.

In accordance with his contract, Ullmark could list 16 teams on his no-trade list. Murphy reported that Ullmark likes living in Boston. Murphy was able to confirm that 14 of the teams on Ullmark’s no-trade list were in the Western Conference.

The Bruins were willing to deal Ullmark because they boast another quality goalie in Jeremy Swayman. He has played 36 games this season, while Ullmark has played 31.
