L.A. Kings Eyeing Bruins Player Before Upcoming Deadline

Published March 3, 2024 at 12:13

The Boston Bruins' goalie Linus Ullmark seems to be an interesting target for the L.A. Kings. The Kings are in need of a top tier goalie, and although Ullmark let in 5 goals from a total of 26 shots on Saturday night, scouts and fans alike could clearly see that he was left out to dry by his teammates throught the game. On top of being the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, Ullmark is believed to have what it takes to warrant the attention he's been getting the last two weeks.

An NHL executive source had this to say to Boston Hockey Now on Saturday: "There's a market for him," the source told BHN. "If I look at the teams out west – the Oilers, the Avalanche, and the Kings – I think the Kings want one the most. I think they really like Ullmark."

The Bruins have infamously abandoned a defense-first mentality for the better part of the last 15 years, which has been a point of contention among fans. Clearing some cap space and shaking things up could be what they need to potentially turn things around, and a deal involving Ullmark could be exactly what allows them to do it.

Ullmark is 30 years old, going on his 3rd season in a 4 year, $20 million dollar contract. After the loss on Saturday night, he's 16-7-6 with a 2.80 GAA and a .910 save percentage.

The Bruins have reportedly been interested in upcoming unrestricted free agents defenseman Matt Roy and winger Arthur Kaliyev, who are seemingly on the outs with the Kings.
