Zach Senyshyn Requests Trade From the Boston Bruins

Zach Senyshyn is looking for a fresh start and doesn’t believe he’ll get it with the Bruins. He’d like to be traded.

The second player in a month to officially request a trade out of the Boston Bruins organization, Zach Senyshyn is looking for a fresh start and doesn’t believe he’ll get it with the Bruins who, according to Senyshyn hasn’t “been given that opportunity in the Bruins organization.”

Speaking with Mark Divver of Rinkside Rhode Island, Senyshyn said he will report back to Providence of the AHL after the holiday break, but believes it would be best for both sides to let him go elsewhere and see if another team is interested in giving him a new opportunity. Like Jake DeBrusk, — who also requested a trade and is from the same draft class — Senyshyn feels this is something he needs to do and this will be best for his NHL career.

He was drafted in the first round (No. 15) in 2015, and he’s on his fifth season with the Providence Bruins. He’s had three very short windows to prove himself in the NHL, the most being in 2020-21, when he played 14 games, scoring a goal and two assists. He said, “I feel like my game has gotten to that level where I’m ready to play and I’m ready to make an impact.” He added that he’s under the impression he’s not viewed as someone who is going to get another look from the Bruins and said with all of the backlash with the media thanks to his draft position, “it’s just been a lot emotionally.”

He just wants to be useful. He said, “I’m not being used at all. I feel as though it’s better for them to get some return and for me to get a fresh start.’’

Bruins 2015 Draft Among the Worst Busts In Recent History

The Bruins were heavily criticized for going way off the draft board when they made three consecutive selections in the first round of the 2015 draft. Jakub Zboril and DeBrusk were the two other selections and all three have been relative disappointments.

If the Bruins trade Senyshyn and DeBrusk, they won’t have much left to show for that draft. The fact that two of the three players already want out is a bad sign.
