Linus Ullmark Aims to Achieve a Feat Unseen in NHL Goaltending Since 2007

Winning the Vezina Trophy twice in a row in the NHL is rare, with only Sergei Bobrovsky achieving it in 2013 and 2017. The last back-to-back winner was Martin Brodeur in 2007 and 2008.

Linus Ullmark faces the challenge of maintaining his stellar performance, but factors like roster changes and the emergence of Jeremy Swayman come into play. Ullmark's impressive stats from last season, especially in high-pressure situations, make him a strong Vezina Trophy contender.

If he secures back-to-back Vezina Trophies, Ullmark will make Bruins history alongside legends like Tiny Thompson, Frank Brimsek, and Tim Thomas. Thompson achieved it in 1930s, Brimsek in 1939 and 1942, and Thomas in 2009 and 2011.
