Bruins goaltender addresses reports of drama in the locker room

Published August 10, 2023 at 5:23 PM

The Boston Bruins' goaltending duo of Jeremy Swayman and Linus Ullmark isn't just about the big paychecks.

While their salaries reflect their importance as top-notch options, their camaraderie and competition are equally significant.

After earning the William M. Jennings Trophy for the league's best goaltending duo in 2023, the duo's bond is evident.

Swayman, fresh from arbitration, secured around $3.5 million and clarified that finances won't divide him and Ullmark.

«There's nothing separating that guy and I,»
he emphasized, expressing excitement about reuniting on the ice. Their relationship thrives on mutual support, and Swayman values Ullmark's backing.

However, their rapport doesn't dim the competitive spirit. With only one netminder on the ice during games, both understand that practice battles sharpen their skills.

«If we're not competing as hard, the other guy is going to take over the net... that's what is going to elevate our level every single game,» Swayman noted.

As the Bruins aim to replicate their 2022-23 success, their determination to propel each other forward remains a cornerstone.

Their rivalry-driven cooperation is set to be a driving force for the upcoming season.
