Don Sweeney gives update on Bruins’ interest in a Tuukka Rask return

Sweeney provides upgrade on Bruins’ interest in a Tuukka Rask return initially appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins continue to keep track of the development Tuukka Rask is making in his rehabilitation from offseason hip surgical treatment, and it seems like a reunion later on in the 2021-22 NHL season is certainly a possibility.

Rask is presently a complimentary representative as he recuperates from his injury. ESPN’s Sean McDonough reported throughout the Bruins-Rangers broadcast on ABC last Friday that the 34-year-old goaltender will quickly skate 5 times weekly, is targeting a January go back to video game action and still wants to bet the Bruins.

Bruins basic supervisor Don Sweeney talked to press reporters Tuesday and supplied an upgrade on the group’s interaction with Rask.

Evaluating by these remarks from Sweeney, it sure seem like the Bruins are quite available to bringing Rask back at some time.

It makes good sense, too. The Bruins’ goaltending has actually been typical for the majority of this season.

Offseason addition Linus Ullmark has actually published a 5-3-0 record with a .914 save portion and a 2.76 objectives versus average. Novice netminder Jeremy Swayman is 6-4-0 with a .908 save portion and a 2.42 GAA. Neither gamer has actually developed himself as the well-defined No. 1 goalie on the depth chart.

If that stays the case when Rask has the ability to return, then the Bruins must definitely pursue a reunion with the previous Vezina Prize winner. 

We might dispute Rask’s capability to win in the Stanley Cup Playoffs throughout the day long. However we understand that a healthy Rask is much better than Swayman and Ullmark in 2022.
