The Boston Bruins have two goalies in Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman lined up entering the 82-game season this year. But could Tuukka Rask still return?
Naturally, there’s plenty of speculation surrounding the free-agent goalie.
Rask underwent hip surgery to repair a torn labrum and is expected to be sidelined until early next year. He’s made it clear the Bruins are the only team he wants to play for, and general manager Don Sweeney said last month they’ve “always left the door open” for a return.
“I do (believe he has more left),” Cassidy said during an appearance on TSN 1200 in Ottawa. “I think that’ll be his call at the end of the day.”
Of course, a lot can happen between now and January and February, and a lot depends on Rask’s recovery. There’s also the Bruins’ cap situation, but they have plenty of time should they wish to welcome Rask back.
