Boston Bruins Star Blocks Major Trade At The Deadline

Published March 9, 2024 at 10:19

Amidst the silence surrounding the Boston Bruins in the lead-up to the NHL trade deadline, intriguing revelations have emerged post-deadline. Speculation now suggests that the Bruins' intended trade maneuver was thwarted by one of their own players.

NHL insider Kevin Weekes disclosed that goaltender Linus Ullmark vetoed a potential trade, citing "geographical concerns." This claim gains credence from corroborating reports throughout the day. Earlier, Weekes hinted at Bruins' goaltending trade talks without divulging details.

@KevinWeekes on ESPN The Point says #NHLBruins thought they had something with Linus Ullmark, «so there was a deal that he essentially nixed, in large part based on geography, I'm told.»

Frank Seravalli also hinted at a potential deal between the Bruins and Los Angeles Kings involving Ullmark, which faltered, possibly due to Ullmark's veto. Ullmark's use of his contractual leverage sheds light on the Bruins' quiet deadline demeanor and hints at missed opportunities.

Fascinating day for #NHLBruins, sounds like they had a deal on the table to move G Linus Ullmark to #LAKings that didn't end up crossing the finish line.
