The Marc Savard Top Scorer Award is awarded to the Oshawa Generals player who records the most points in the regular season. This year’s recipient is none other than Bruins prospect, Jack Studnicka. With 22 goals and 50 assists for 72 points in 66 games played, Studnicka brings home the prestigious award.
Studnicka was drafted by the Bruins in the second round (53rd overall) of the 2017 NHL draft. Since being drafted, Studnicka has upped his game. Studnicka has amassed 20 more points this season than he did last season.
At the 2017 World Juniors, Studnicka scored 3 goals in 3 games and really impressed Bruins management and the coaching staff. Fun fact: Torey Krug’s father, Kyle, coached Studnicka in the OHL.
Back to the Marc Savard Award, Savard is the all time points leader for the Oshawa Generals, it only makes sense that an award is named after him. Savard’s No. 27 was retired by the Generals back in 2016. Savard recorded 413 points over a span of four seasons with the Gens.
For Studnicka to win the award is a true honor. A former Boston Bruin awarding a Boston Bruins prospect with his award, that’s pretty cool. Hearing about Studnicka winning the Savard Award brings back so many memories of Savy. It’s nice to hear that a Bruins prospect won his award. Who knows, we could see both Jack Studnicka and Marc Savard behind the B’s bench someday. Savard as a coach of course.
