Tecumseh's Studnicka Named Generals Captain

Tecumseh-native Jack Studnicka is the new captain of the Oshawa Generals.

The forward was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the second round, 53rd overall, this past June.

He scored 18 goals and 52 points in 64 games for Oshawa last season — his sophomore year in the OHL.

“It is a huge honour to be named captain of the Oshawa Generals," says Studnicka in a statement issued by the team. "When you look at the names that have worn the ‘C’ before me, it’s pretty special to be in the same group as them. I love the group we have in the room and I am excited to win with them."

Riley Stillman, Matt Brassard and Kyle MacLean have been appointed as assistant captains with the team.

We are really fortunate to have an abundance of character in our dressing room," says Greg Nemisz, the Generals coach. "Jack Studnicka exemplifies what it means to be a General on and off the ice. His passion for the game, care for his teammates and desire to win are traits that have made his personality infectious amongst our group."

In his rookie season, Studnicka had 4 goals and 22 assists in 62 games with Oshawa.
