Friday's arbitration proceedings between Jeremy Swayman and the Boston Bruins took an unexpected turn as both parties presented vastly different contract asks, prompting the intervention of an arbitrator.

Tuesday, the arbitrator made the verdict, finalizing Swayman's contract for the upcoming season.

According to the decision, Swayman's contract stands at $3.475 million.

The 24-year-old goaltender proved his mettle last season, recording an impressive 24-6-4 record in 37 games, including four shutouts, a 2.27 goals-against average, and a .920 save percentage.

With only 88 games of NHL experience spread across three seasons, Swayman's initial ask of $4.8 million was ambitious.

However, both parties have reached a compromise at $3.475 million, ensuring Swayman's place in the Bruins' lineup for the upcoming year. As the young netminder continues to grow and excel, his performance will be closely monitored by fans and analysts alike.
