The Vancouver Canucks used the 75th overall pick in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft to select right-shot defenceman Hunter Brzustewicz from the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Brzustewicz had a strong first season in the Ontario Hockey League and stood out on a Kitchener Rangers blueline that included Ottawa Senators prospect Tomas Hamara and Tampa Bay Lightning prospect Roman Schmidt.

The Washington, Michigan native also played for the United States at the IIHF U-18 World Championship, recording two assists in five games, helping them win the gold medal.

In the OHL, Brzustewicz put up 57 points (six goals, 51 assists), 12 penalty minutes and was a plus-eight. He went on to add four assists in nine playoff games. His 57 placed him eighth among OHL defencemen last season.


On Sunday evening, the Ontario Hockey League tweeted out a video showcasing Hunter Brzustewicz's highlights from the 2022-23 season. It shows his confidence on the ice and how he can control the play throughout the game. Check out the video below!
