Bruins' Ulllmark cleared to play after sustaining injury Friday
The Boston Bruins and their fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
Ullmark exited Friday's win over the Carolina Hurricanes with an apparent arm injury and didn't return.
The Bruins goaltender is the clear Vezina Trophy front-runner this season. He leads all NHL netminders in wins (13) and tops all players at the position who've played at least four games in save percentage (.935).
The 29-year-old also boasts stellar goals saved above expected and goals saved above average figures.
|Ullmark in 2022-23||GSAx (Rank)||GSAA (Rank)|
|All situations||9.38 (5th)||13.2 (2nd)|
|5-on-5||5.18 (9th)||9.77 (3rd)|
Ulllmark literally split time with Jeremy Swayman in the Boston crease last season, as the puck-stoppers played 41 games apiece. But Ullmark firmly established himself as the club's No. 1 netminder in 2022-23, while Swayman has underachieved with a .890 save percentage despite his 4-2-0 record.
