2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ullmark is expected to be brought back in via restricted free agency after recording 15 wins, a 3.11 GAA and .905 save percentage in 37 appearances (34 starts) for Buffalo last season. Those numbers are right in line with the 3.00 GAA and .908 save percentage posted by starter Carter Hutton, so Ullmark will be looking to push for at least an even timeshare in net, though he's likely to start the season in a backup role. The 26-year-old Swede probably has higher upside than Hutton should he take over the starting job and run with it, but Ullmark also has a lower floor. Read Past Outlooks

Stands tall in shootout victory

Ullmark made 33 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Washington on Monday.
ANALYSIS
Ullmark was working on a shutout through 40 minutes until goals by Washington's Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov in the game's final 17 minutes forced overtime. The Sabres bounced back to win in the shootout, delivering Ullmark -- out since late January with a leg injury -- his first victory since Jan. 16. He improved to 17-14-3 with a 2.69 GAA and .915 save percentage.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2015
Ullmark enters the season as a full-time NHL player after the Sabres elected to part ways with both of their incumbent goalies over the summer. The former SHL Goaltender of the Year is one of the finest young goaltenders to come out of Sweden in recent years, and he graduates to the show after a 44-game campaign with AHL Rochester, where he went 21-12-4 with a .922 save percentage. The Sabres see him as their franchise goalie but won't throw him into the fire just yet, instead tasking him to back up Carter Hutton. If Ullmark plays well there's no doubt the Sabres will give him more starts, but young goalies can be mercurial. Ullmark's fantasy value is as limited as his role this season, but he's a name to remember for the future.
Ullmark will serve as AHL Rochester's starter for the 2017-18 season as he continues to acclimate himself in North America. The former Swedish League Goalie of the Year went 27-26-2 in 55 games for Rochester last year, and allowed three goals on 36 shots in his only start for the Sabres. Ullmark is unlikely to suit up for the Sabres unless Robin Lehner or Chad Johnson get injured.
Ullmark, the 2014 Swedish Hockey League Goalie of the Year, had a tough campaign last year, suffering an injury that resulted in his GAA ballooning to 3.12 and his save percentage dropping to .904. MODO wasn't a strong team and Ullmark's poor play didn't help matters, but he's still regarded as one of the world's best young goaltenders and will make his North American debut this season. He will begin his career with AHL Rochester, where he will attempt to win the starting job over Andrey Makarov to kick off his career.
