The Boston Bruins appear to be breaking up their goaltending tandem this summer as Linus Ullmark has reportedly waived his no-trade clause to agree to a trade.

The Bruins netminder used his trade protection to reject a deal as the deadline that would have sent him to the LA Kings. Now, as a pending free agent, it seems like he has faced the music, and understands that his days with the Bruins are over. As a result, he has reportedly agreed to waive his no-trade clause in order to go to the Ottawa Senators.
Dom (@dominictiano) reports that Ullmark has officially waived his NTC for the Senators.

He also specifies that no trade or extension has been reached yet.

Notably, the Senators will want to have Ullmark signed before trading for him so they know exactly what they are getting, and on what terms. However, the goaltender is not eligible to sign an extension until July 1st. As a result, we will likely see the Bruins sign the goaltender to a contract extension on July 1st and subsequently traded to the Ottawa Senators.
While technically it is true that Linus Ullmark can not officially sign an extension until July 1, he can and then the Sens file it on July 1. The CBJ tried filing early with Mikhail Grigorenko and it was rejected by the league, only to re-file the same deal on July 1.

Ullmark really came into his own after a rough start to his career with the Buffalo Sabres. In six years with the Sabres Ullmark put up a .912 save percentage and a 2.78 goals-against-average. In his time with the Bruins, those numbers improved to a .924 save percentage and 2.28 GAA. Hopefully for the Senators' sake, they get the Bruins version of Ullmark and not the Buffalo version.
Hard to overemphasize how much better Linus Ullmark has been in Boston than he was in Buffalo.
