BOSTON — The Bruins pulled the trigger on the long-awaited Linus Ullmark trade and got themselves a first-round pick, though it didn’t come without a cost.

The B’s dealt the 2022-23 Vezina Trophy winner to the Ottawa Senators for the Sens’ second first-round pick (25th overall) that was originally the B’s pick, as well as goalie Joonas Korpisalo and bottom six forward Mark Kastelic.


The fly in the ointment is Korpisalo’s deal. He’s got four years left on a deal that carries a cap hit of $4 million per season. The Senators will be retaining 25% of Korpisalo’s deal but it still chews into the savings of moving Ullmark. The B’s now have approximately $23 million in cap space.
