Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is expected to finalize his retirement from the NHL in the coming days, as first reported by Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic.

Rask, 35, returned to the Bruins in January after hip surgery took him out of action from the start of the off-season. The Bruins officially signed Rask after a short stint in the AHL where he never got into game action. Rask struggled in his NHL return, posting a 2-2-0 record with a .844 SP and 4.28 GAA.

In 24 appearances during the pandemic-shortened 2021 campaign, Rask racked up a 15-5-2 record with a .913 save percentage and two shutouts. If this is indeed Rask's swan song, he'll finish his career with a 308-165-66 record, 52 shutouts, a Stanley Cup, a Vezina Trophy and an Olympic bronze medal in a 15-year NHL career.
