The Boston Bruins traded Linus Ullmark this off-season, and now they'll be negotiating in good faith with their No. 1 Jeremy Swayman.

Last summer, both Jeremy Swayman and the Boston Bruins saw the cost of going to arbitration, as the two parties came together on a deal to pay him $3.5 million for the 2023/24 campaign. Now, they face the possibility of arbitration again, but recently, both of them made their decision, with Swayman and the Bruins electing not to enter arbitration.
Bruins have elected not to file for arbitration
At 25-years of age, Swayman is set up to be the Bruins long-term goaltending answer, and after trading his net minding partner Linus Ullmark to the Ottawa Senators, he's the only option that the Bruins have. It's unclear where the two parties are at in the negotiating stage, but with a career year that saw him win the job in round one against the Toronto Maple Leafs, he's set to be paid for a long time to come.
This however is a positive first step in what could be a very big contract moving forward, so expect to hear much more about this situation over the coming weeks and months.
