The Boston Bruins are emerging from a record-breaking NHL regular season, led by the dynamic goaltending duo of Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark, who secured the prestigious William M. Jennings Trophy.

Ullmark's outstanding performance also earned him the esteemed Vezina Trophy.

Amid the ongoing offseason, Swayman faced the process of salary arbitration, an experience he holds no bitterness towards. Following the arbitration proceedings, he secured a one-year contract worth $3.475 million.

Speaking to the press at Warrior Ice Arena on Tuesday, the 24-year-old goalie shared his thoughts on reuniting with his goaltending partner, Ullmark, and how their camaraderie pushes them both to excel.

Swayman expressed his excitement about their strong bond, stating,
"There's nothing separating that guy and I, so that's going to be something I'm really excited about. Really looking forward to being back in action with him again."
Reflecting on their iconic goalie hug, Swayman credited the Boston fanbase for creating such a remarkable atmosphere, expanding its influence throughout the global hockey community.

He delved into the deeper meaning of their celebrated embrace, emphasizing that the hug represents a unique connection they've forged together.

"That's something that will never be replicated again. That's something that we've created together and, no matter what, we look forward to that every year."
Swayman highlighted that the hug transcends mere spectacle; it carries an internal significance rooted in their mutual respect and understanding of the challenges of winning in the NHL.

«To see the endless support that these fans have given us is something that is going to give us motivation through anything that comes our way.»

With the upcoming 2023-24 campaign on the horizon, Swayman and Ullmark anticipate many more opportunities to celebrate with their fans through their cherished goalie hugs.
