BostonBruins.com - The Boston Bruins selected Oshawa Generals forward Jack Studnicka with the 53rd overall pick on Saturday morning at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft in Chicago.
"You hear it all the time, words can't really describe it. But they can't," said Studnicka. "I've been dreaming of being drafted in the NHL since I can remember. Now that Boston's made it a reality, it's pretty special.
"I'm incredibly excited to see the city of Boston. I've never been, so it's going to be a special experience. I'm excited to get on the ice there, meet the fans, meet some of the players and get to know them. Really looking forward to camp."
Studnicka said he models his game after Toronto Maple Leafs forward Tyler Bozak.
"What you can expect from me is someone who takes pride in the defensive zone, can be trusted in all three zones," he said. "But at the same time can contribute to offense and put up some numbers."
