Linus Ullmark Continues to Make History

Linus Ullmark has been the heart and soul of this year’s Boston Bruins. In just his second year in Boston, he has shown the Bruins faithful just how good he is. From his highlight reel saves to the goalie hugs after games, Ullmark has solidified himself as a Bruin. Due to his improved play this season, the Bruins have gotten off to their best start in the franchise’s history as they sit at 23-4-1 and 47 points.

Ullmark once again put himself in the NHL history books after a win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night.

With a 4-3 shootout win, Ullmark improved his record to 17-0-1 on the season and became just the fifth goaltender in league history to do so. As per NHL Public Relations:

Linus Ullmark (23 saves) improved to 17-1-0 through his first 20 games in 2022-23. He became the fifth goaltender in NHL history to register 17-plus wins through his first 20 contests of a campaign joining Tiny Thompson (18 in 1929-30 w/ BOS), Andrew Hammond (17 in 2014-15 w/ OTT), Evgeni Nabokov (17 in 2008-09 w/ SJS) and Alec Connell (17 in 1925-26 w/ SEN).

It has been a remarkable season for the veteran goaltender, as when he is in net, the Bruins know winning any game is possible. Due to his hot start to the season, the 29-year-old Ullmark has placed himself into the Vezina Trophy conversation early on as he leads the league in almost every statistic for goaltenders.
