9/25 Recap: Ullmark victorious

In Tuesday action, Linus Ullmark made 26 saves in his first HockeyAllsvenskan start as Mora defeated Vasteras 6-2. Ullmark, who came on in relief in Saturday's come-from-behind win, has started off his loan assignment with two wins, a 1.80 goals against average, and a .917 save percentage. Mora could again lean on Ullmark when they take the ice Thursday versus Bofors.

In SM-liiga, Joel Armia was blanked as Assat gave up a late penalty-shot goal to lose 2-1 to HIFK. Armia, who wore the Aces golden helmet as the team's leading scorer, received a season-high 19:13 of work in the loss. Assat hits the road for Thursday and Friday games at KalPa and JYP.
