Breaking: Vegas Golden Knights Confirm To Reached Mutual Agreement To Sign Top Experienced Goaltender

Golden Knights Reportedly Interested in Bruins Goaltender Linus Ullmark


While the Ottawa Senators have been the primary team pursuing Boston Bruins goaltender Linus Ullmark, recent reports indicate that the Vegas Golden Knights and Detroit Red Wings are also showing interest.

David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period identified five teams that have inquired about acquiring either Logan Thompson or Adin Hill. These teams are the Senators, Red Wings, Toronto Maple Leafs, Buffalo Sabres, and Carolina Hurricanes.

The Senators, in need of a starting goaltender, have been trying to secure a deal with the Bruins. However, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Citizen reports that the Golden Knights and Red Wings have entered the conversation for Ullmark.


Ullmark, the 2022-23 Vezina Trophy winner, had a solid season with a .915 save percentage (SV%) and a 2.57 goals-against average (GAA) over 40 games, forming a top goaltending duo with Jeremy Swayman. Swayman, younger at 25, slightly outperformed Ullmark with a .916 SV% and a 2.53 GAA in 44 games and took over in the playoffs, helping to defeat the Maple Leafs. The Bruins are likely to keep Swayman, partly due to his age and playoff performance.

Ullmark’s contract, comparable to Adin Hill’s, ends after this season. Financially, replacing Hill with Ullmark would be a similar move for the Golden Knights, but Ullmark has been a more reliable goaltender overall.

The challenge for the Golden Knights is meeting the Bruins’ demands, as Boston seeks a center and Vegas lacks depth in this position, along with limited draft capital beyond their first-round pick this year.

Despite the difficulties, General Manager Kelly McCrimmon has a reputation for making significant deals, so the Golden Knights should not be discounted.
