After his offseason hip surgery, free-agent goaltender Tuukka Rask was at the Boston Bruins training facility, leaving Bruins fans in a frenzy that the veteran goaltender could return to Boston. With $1.5M in cap space, the Bruins have very little money to bring back Rask, but with Jake DeBrusk recently requesting a trade, cap space could go way up.

While rumors have started to swirl that Rask may be open to signing with another contender, we will likely see Tuukka Rask return to Boston in January, but anything can happen with how the Bruins front office is looking.
