DANIEL BUKAC (NIAGARA ICEDOGS):
He’s scored in the WHL before, but Boston Bruins prospect Daniel Bukac found the back of the net for the first time in his OHL career on Sunday. The 6-foot-6, 210Ib. Czech defenceman opened the scoring in Niagara’s 5-1 road win over Sudbury, getting assists from Kyen Sopa and Ivan Lodnia. The 19-year-old joined the IceDogs through this past summer’s CHL Import Draft and has a pair of points and a plus-8 rating through nine games this season. Bukac spent parts of two seasons with the Brandon Wheat Kings from 2016-18 and represented the Czech Republic at the 2017 World Under-18 Hockey Championship. He was Boston’s seventh round pick in 2017.
