Boston Bruins 2017 Second-Round selection Jack Studnicka certainly made the best of his release from the summer offseason training camp events in Boston to return to his Ontario Hockey League’s Oshawa Generals in style with a four-point effort and 8-2 pounding over opponent Sudbury Wolves.
Bruins 2017 2nd rd draft pick Jack Studnicka scored 4 points (2 G 2A) tonight in the first game of the season. Good start for the captain!

The 6′-2″ 180-pound right-shooting center had 2-2-4 numbers to start his third year of Canadian Junior Hockey tonight and had a solid season before getting selected 54th in round two as he contributed 18-34-52 totals in 64 games played. If you want a solid prediction of what kind of year this kid might have, check out OHL Writers Regional Prospect guru Dominic Tiano’s Tweet below, and if this is what’s to be expected it’s another solid selection moving forward in the developmental scheme of the Bruins.

As being a recent draft pick I can only go on what I’ve seen on video and his first development/main camp experience and have to say he’s a quick player with a set of crafty hands. Smart player with nice passing skills as he seems to be a look first unselfish type of player and I’m only basing my words on same team training sessions.
I’m definitely going to be paying more attention with a closer eye with available streams when I can but will heavily rely on the fantastic members of the Minor League Hockey community such as Guy Flaming, Steve Kournianos, Dobber Prospects Radio, and the mentioned Dominic Tiano for their knowledge and insight of tomorrow’s stars. If you’re a prospect person and need solid outlets, I highly recommend you give them a follow.
