The Boston Bruins on Saturday selected center Jack Studnicka of the Oshawa Generals (OHL) with their second-round pick (53rd overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft.
Studnicka tallied 52 points (18 goals, 34 assists) in 64 games for the Generals during the 2016-17 campaign. He also posted 15 points in 11 playoff games for the Generals last season.
He’s a right-handed shot listed at 6-foot-1 and 171 pounds. NHL Central Scouting ranked him No. 120 among North American skaters in the 2017 draft class.
Boston acquired this second-round selection from the Edmonton Oilers as compensation for the Oil signing former Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli.
Boston picked Finnish defenseman Urho Vaakanainen on Friday with their first-round selection.
