With the offseason nearly over, the Boston Bruins and Zach Senyshyn have finally agreed on a new deal, as the Bruins have formally signed the 24-year-old winger to a one-year, two-way deal worth $750,000 at the NHL level.

Senyshyn, taken with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, appeared in eight games with the Big B’s last season, and finished with 10 shots on goal and 11 hits over that sample. Overall, Senyshyn has recorded one goal (an empty-net goal to seal the deal on a win in Minnesota) and three points in 14 total NHL games over the last three seasons.

The Ottawa, Ont. native’s aforementioned eight-game run with Boston in 2021 was his largest NHL run to date, and came with Senyshyn drawing rave reviews from then-Providence head coach Jay Leach for his all-situation play.

But injuries once again derailed Senyshyn, whose 2021 actually began with a trip to the waiver wire, and he ended the year with Providence, where he recorded seven goals and 13 points in 18 games in the minors.

In 192 career games in the AHL, Senyshyn has recorded 40 goals and 39 assists for 79 points.
