Does Jeremy Swayman have what it takes to become a star goaltender?

The Boston Bruins may have the best goalie combination in Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark , but can Jeremy Swayman become a star goaltender? We have already seen Linus Ullmark win the Vezina Trophy but can Jeremy Swayman do the same?

So far in Swayman career, he has a 2.35 GAA and .919 save percentage. This year, he has a 2.58 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Most teams would love to have a goaltender with these numbers as their starter and Swayman has been perceived as the backup as he was the back up for 6 of the 7 games in last year's playoffs.

Former NHL goaltender Carter Hutton gave his opinion on Jeremy Swayman future as a goaltender in the NHL on Daily Faceoff LIVE. He stated the following:

"I know he's been protected in a good Bruins system and structure with Linus Ullmark, but I think moving forward now with his contract coming up you watch him now, the way he plays, he covers a lot of the net, and I think his confidence has grown. It takes a little bit of time and reps to get the mental side of your game there. He has that experience now. I look for him to be a starter next year. I know there is going to be contract negotiations, but he is a guy that comes into [the Vezina] conversation, full tilt."

This is high praise for the Bruins netminder, and it appears that he will be the Bruins goaltender of the future. With Swayman, only being 25, there should a lot of great years to come with Swayman between the pipes.
