Rask announced his retirement from professional hockey Wednesday. The 34-year-old Finn spent his entire 15-year NHL career in Boston, appearing in 564 regular-season games while posting a 308-165-66 record, 2.28 GAA, .921 save percentage and a whopping 52 shutouts. Rask captured a Vezina Trophy and an Olympic bronze medal in 2014, and he also partook in three Stanley Cup Finals (winning in 2011). Linus Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman will continue to serve as the No. 1 and 2 options between the pipes in Beantown.
Rask (lower body) is set to miss at least a week after coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters the netminder "won't be practicing this week," Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Rask only re-signed with the Bruins in mid-January after dealing with a hip injury in the offseason and now finds himself sidelined once again. It's unclear if the veteran's lower-body issue is related to his hip problem. In the meantime, Jeremy Swayman was recalled from the minors and will get the start versus Pittsburgh on Tuesday.
Rask (lower body) will not suit up Sunday against Dallas, Kevin Paul Dumont of The Boston Globe reports. Rask is reportedly still day-to-day with the injury, so it's unclear how long he'll remain sidelined. With Linus Ullmark playing well and Jeremy Swayman a capable No. 2, there's not an immediate need for Rask to rush his return
Rask (lower body) is not available Friday against Arizona, Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe reports. Rask is considered day-to-day, so he could be an option Sunday against Dallas. Troy Grosenick will serve as the backup behind Linus Ullmark on Friday.
Rask made 22 saves on 27 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Ducks on Monday. Rask has now made four starts with Boston in his return, with a record of 2-2-0. He has allowed two goals in each of the two wins and five goals in each of the two losses, though he has not had to face more than 27 shots.
