Departing players: Three Bruins who won't return next season

Published March 26, 2024 at 6:46 PM

Three Bruins players will most likely not be returning to the Bruins roster next season. Linus Ullmark, Derek Forbort and Kevin Shattenkirk are in talks for different futures that do not seem to be located in Boston.

The highly esteemed Linus Ullmark has had a lot of trade talks surrounding him ever since the last trade deadline. Questions about him potentially leaving the Bruins were constantly being brought up, and those questions get a closer and closer answer by the day. After his trade was blocked to the Kings, the Bruins are reportedly in line to use him as a valuable trade resource after this season. With a reliable goalie to lean on such as Swayman, Ullmark's star power can most definitely allow the Bruins to allocate adjustments elsewhere to the team.

Kevin Shattenkirk's most recent stats show 56 games played with 5 goals and 17 assists. He has emerged as a valuable and budget-friendly asset for the Boston Bruins' defense. Although Shattenkirk has provided a solid performance for the Bruins, the recent addition of Andrew Peeke during the trade deadline hints at a potential shift in Shattenkirk's role within the team as they look ahead to the upcoming season. Insider reports show that he will most likely be parting ways with Boston.

It appears that Derek Forbort's tenure with the Bruins may be coming to an end. This season, he has 35 games played with 0 goals and 4 assists. Given the fact that he is an impending unrestricted free agent, and that he has recently been grappling with two significant injuries, it's probable that the Bruins will opt to part ways with him when his contract expires this summer.
