Vancouver Canucks prospect Hunter Brzustewicz is setting the Ontario Hockey League on fire this season and what he's done from a point production standpoint is pretty remarkable.

Heading into Friday night's contest against the North Bay Battalion, Brzustewicz had a 13-game point streak, which was the longest by a Kitchener Rangers defenceman since the 2004-05 season.


But against the Battalion, there was no way he was going to slow down and allow them to break that point streak.


During the game, Brzustewicz received a pass at the top of the Battalion zone where he one-timed it on net. The puck made its way through North Bay goaltender Mike McIvor, before being poked home by Cameron Mercer to give Kitchener a 5-2 lead. With the assist, Brzustewicz's point streak has now been extended to 14 games.

"Hunter Brzustewicz rips a one-timer and, with a little help, grabs his 22nd assist of the year. #Canucks

You know what that means...

Give the kid a 14-game point-streak."



In 15 games this season, the Washington, Michigan native has 27 points (five goals, 22 assists), six penalty minutes and is a plus-ten.

It'll be interesting to see how Brzustewicz does during the month of November as he tries to catch the eye of USA Hockey ahead of them naming their roster for the 2024 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship. Given his play to start the season, he's certainly earned a spot and should be on the team's final roster.

Brzustewicz will have an opportunity to extend his point streak to 15 games on Sunday night as the Kitchener Rangers travel down highway 401 to face the London Knights.
