Jeremy Swayman ‘Super Grateful’ For Support Of Tuukka Rask, Jaroslav Halak

'So I’m just super grateful for everything they’ve helped me with'


Apr 25, 2021

Jeremy Swayman has two talented goaltenders to learn from as he navigates through the NHL as a member of the Boston Bruins.

Swayman was called up from the Providence Bruins when Rask was dealing with a lingering injury and Halak was on the league’s COVID-19 list. He quickly impressed game after game, even in his losses, and knew exactly what to say after each start.

The 22-year-old is just happy be part of the Bruins locker room, and is “super grateful” to his two veteran teammates.

“They’ve been super supportive. Those are two veteran guys in the locker room that I get to look up to and learn from every day,” Swayman said after the Bruins’ 1-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. “So I’m just super grateful for everything they’ve helped me with. Again they’ve been super supportive and I think at the end of the day I think they want whatever’s best for the team. All three of us are really pushing for each other. I couldn’t ask for much more, I’m really happy with the trio we have right now.”

Head coach Bruce Cassidy said Swayman “absolutely” did enough Sunday to earn another start between the pipes, so it appears he will continue to add to his knowledge passed down by the tandem of Rask and Halak.
