Zach Senyshyn is heading to New Jersey Devils training camp on a pro tryout deal, according to a team press release Wednesday.
Senyshyn, 25, was selected by the Boston Bruins in the first round, 15th overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Following a major junior career with the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds, Senyshyn began his professional career in the 2017-18 season with Boston’s AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
The forward made his NHL debut for Boston on April 4, 2019 against the Minnesota Wild, also scoring his first career goal. On March 21, 2022, the Ottawa Senators acquired Senyshyn and a 2022 fifth-round pick in a trade that sent Josh Brown and a conditional 2022 seventh-round pick to the Bruins.
In 16 career NHL appearances (over four seasons) to date, Senyshyn has one goal and two assists. During the 2021-22 season, Senyshyn made two appearances for Ottawa but did not score a point.
Last season, Senyshyn also played 67 AHL games, split between the Providence Bruins and Belleville Senators. He registered 19 goals and 15 assists for a total of 34 points. In 259 regular season games with the minors, he has 113 career points.
The Devils’ NHL camp opens next Wednesday (September 21).
