Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin announced today that the club has acquired forward Jack Studnicka from the Boston Bruins in exchange for goaltender Michael DiPietro and defenceman Jonathan Myrenberg.
Studnicka, 23, has appeared in one game with Boston so far this season, registering four penalty minutes. Last season, the 6’1″, 187-pound forward split time between Boston (0-3-3 in 15 GP) and the AHL’s Providence Bruins, ranking tied for third on Providence in scoring with 35 points (10-25-35) in 41 games. He also ranked third on the team in power play points, tallying two goals and 12 assists on the man-advantage
Over the course of four seasons with the Bruins organization, Studnicka has accumulated seven points (1-6-7) and 10 penalty minutes in 38 games played at the NHL level and 96 points (34-62-96) in 117 AHL contests. In his rookie season (2019.20), he led Providence in scoring, setting team-highs in goals (23), assists (26), and points (49). That same year, Studnicka appeared in five playoff games with Boston during the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
A native of Windsor, Ontario, Studnicka has represented Canada multiple times on the international stage, including at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championships in Vancouver (1-3-4 in 5 GP).
Studnicka was originally selected by the Boston Bruins in the second round, 53rd overall in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
