NHL Rumors: Los Angeles Kings and Boston Bruins

PuckReportNHL: Kevin Weekes on ESPN The Point said that the Boston Bruins thought they had a deal involving Ullmark: “So there was a deal that he essentially nixed, in large part based on geography, I’m told.”

Jimmy Murphy of Boston Hockey Now: Linus Ullmark has a 16-team no-trade clause. We’ve reported the LA Kings had interest in the past few weeks but a source said it was not the Los Angeles Kings to whom Weekes was referring.

Another source said on Friday that 14 of the 16 teams on his no-trade list are in the Western Conference.
