2018 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Wrecked by Rangers
GBuffalo Sabres
February 15, 2019
Ullmark stopped 23 of 28 shots in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
The Blueshirts' final goal was scored into an empty net. While Ullmark has taken over the No. 1 goalie job in Buffalo for now, he's been far from consistent, allowing at least four goals in three of his last five starts. Don't be surprised if Carter Hutton gets the nod Sunday against the Devils.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
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.
