Linus Ullmark has etched his name in the NHL history books by becoming the goaltender with the fewest games to reach 40 wins in a season (49GP). In doing so, he surpasses Braden Holtby, who achieved the feat during the 2015-2016 season with the Washington Capitals. Ullmark’s incredible season also makes him only the second goalie in Boston Bruins history to record a 40-win season, joining Pete Peeters, who did it in the 1982-1983 season.

The 29-year-old goaltender, who was a sixth-round pick by the Buffalo Sabres back in 2012, has been nothing short of phenomenal for the Bruins this season. Ullmark boasts an impressive 1.89 goals-against average (GAA) and a .938 save percentage (SV%), leading the league in both of those statistics.
Ullmark’s outstanding performance between the pipes has been a crucial factor in the Bruins’ historic regular season, during which they’ve broken record after record. With a solid goaltender like Ullmark, the Bruins have their sights set on the ultimate prize – the Stanley Cup.
As the playoffs approach, the Bruins will be relying heavily on Ullmark to maintain his high level of play and help guide the team to victory. Given his performance thus far, there’s every reason to believe that he will continue to excel and be a cornerstone for the Bruins as they make their run for the Cup. Linus Ullmark NHL Record
