Foligno, Ullmark each sign contract with Bruins

Article at a glance:

  • "I think [the Bruins] track record speaks for itself," Foligno said.
  • Foligno, a 33-year-old forward, received two years and $7.6 million (average annual value of $3.8 million).
  • He scored 20 points (seven goals, 13 assists) in 49 regular-season games for the Toronto Maple Leafs and Columbus Blue Jackets last season, including four assists in seven games after he was acquired by Toronto on April 11 as part of a three-team trade that included the San Jose Sharks. .
  • Selected by the Ottawa Senators in the first round (No. 28) of the 2006 NHL Draft, Foligno has scored 486 points (203 goals, 283 assists) in 957 regular-season games with the Maple Leafs, Blue Jackets and Senators, and 23 points (nine goals, 14 assists) in 55 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
  • Ullmark got four years and $20 million ($5 million AAV).
  • It's tough to say what my expectations are because it's just about being better than I was last season and trying to top that and just keep on playing hockey and enjoying it.".
  • The 34-year-old was 15-5-2 with a 2.28 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and two shutouts in 24 regular-season games for the Bruins last season.
  • "We're fortunate to have the opportunity to bring a goaltender in at a primary age, wealth of experience, and we just think that where we were currently sitting with two young goaltenders, we need to be prepared, allow Tuukka all the time he needs to get healthy," Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said.
  • We've always left the door open for Tuukka to return, and I think it just allows Jeremy to continue to progress at a natural rate but also give him opportunity to be at the NHL level.
  • But for all the right reasons we just felt we've had very strong goaltending.
  • Forwards Tomas Nosek (two years, $3.5 million) and Erik Haula (two years, $4.75 million), and defensemen Mike Reilly (three years, $9 million) and Derek Forbort (three years, $9 million), each got a new contract from the Bruins.
  • He scored 12 points (two goals, 10 assists) in 56 games for the Winnipeg Jets last season.
