Trade Proposal Gets Bruins ‘Fairly Unique’ Center for Linus Ullmark after…

he Boston Bruins made clear their “phone is going to ring” this offseason when dealing with their goalie rotation.

Virtual backup netminder Linus Ullmark has been in endless trade rumors since the last trade deadline with Jeremy Swayman solidifying his starting status during the 2024 regular season and playoffs.

Carolina Hurricanes forward Martin Necas also seems poised to leave his team via trade before the 2024-25 season.

The Hurricanes might be about to lose a “fairly unique” talent in Necas if he leaves at some point before the 2025 season.


That’s how Reyan Henkel of The Hockey News described the forward in his end-of-season “State of the Roster” review of the Canes’ pending restricted free agents on June 3.

It is fair to say that the Boston Bruins prospects are a mixed bag. Some look like they will be the future of the franchise, and others will simply slip away from the team into obscurity, destined to be nothing more than an obscure answer on a Super-fan quiz. Often, those who are sent to the European leagues to develop end up falling into the latter category. This may be because the game in Europe is different, but a quick scan of the Bruins’ roster shows 5 players from across the pond, all of who have shown they can handle playing in “The Show”.


So, as B’s fans start looking forward to the draft, let’s take a look at the three Bruins prospects who will be spending the 2024-25 season in the Euros.
