Jeremy Swayman made a shocking decision regarding his contract, causing major speculation about his long-term future with the Boston Bruins.

Despite being an RFA and eligible for arbitration, Swayman chose not to file, suggesting confidence in reaching a long-term deal with the Bruins.
Reports all summer indicated that GM Don Sweeney was working on securing a long-term contract with Swayman, especially after trading former Vezina-winning goalie Linus Ullmark to the Ottawa Senators. The trade included Ullmark going to Ottawa in exchange for Boston's 2024 first-round pick, Mark Kastelic, and Joonas Korpisalo, with Ottawa retaining 25 percent of Korpisalo's salary.
With Ullmark gone, Swayman remains Boston's primary option in goal. Many expected him to leverage this position to secure a massive payday through arbitration, potentially signing a one-year deal to edge closer to unrestricted free agency. However, his decision to skip arbitration indicates that he and his agents likely believe a favorable long-term deal with the Bruins is imminent.
Currently, Swayman remains unsigned, but the Bruins are expected to prioritize his extension. The two sides will continue negotiations, with Boston retaining Swayman's rights. The trade of Ullmark underscores the importance of securing Swayman's future with the team. Further updates on Swayman's situation will be closely monitored.
