Pair of Bruins Rank as Most Improved in the NHL this Season

Published May 6, 2023 at 3:42 PM

The Boston Bruins were an unstoppable force (in the regular season), and it's thanks to some outstanding individual campaigns up and down the lineup.

From breakout to bouncing back to even the consistently exceptional performances of David Pastrnak, it feels like every player on the Bruins had a career-best performance at some point this year.

Who Stands Out the Most?

The spotlight has particularly shone on a particular set of Bruins' players, that being Hampus Lindholm and Linus Ullmark. As per @top.chelf on Instagram, these two players should rank among the NHL's most improved.

Do you agree? Check it out:

At 29 years old, Lindholm recorded career highs with 10 goals and 43 assists in 80 games for Boston this season. However, the defenseman was snubbed from being a finalist for the Norris Trophy.

Prior to 2022-23, his previous personal best was during the 2014-15 season, when he collected 34 points in 78 games for the Anaheim Ducks.

Ullmark, also 29, will most likely take home the Vezina Trophy this season, as he won the NHL's unofficial ''Triple Crown'' by leading all goaltenders in wins (40), GAA (1.89), and SV% (.938).

Oh, and he scored the first goalie goal in Boston Bruins history this season.
