A big one for the kid!

Jack Studnicka is officially on the board!

The Bruins’ top prospect got the Bruins’ first goal of the night tonight against the Flyers. It was the first non-preseason goal of his NHL career, and was also the Bruins’ first 5v5 goal of the young season.

That’s a whole bunch of firsts on one goal!

The goal should be a nice confidence boost for Studnicka. While he certainly hasn’t looked out of place at the NHL level, you have to imagine it’s a relief to get that first one out of the way.

It’s the second point of Studnicka’s career, as he earned an assist in his NHL debut last season, an 8-1 drubbing of the Montreal Canadiens.

Given that it’s currently tied in the third, I don’t think tonight’s game will end with the same margin...but here’s to hoping it ends with the same ultimate result.

Congrats to Studnicka! First of many, we all hope.
