Canucks Trade Jack Studnicka to Sharks in Exchange for Nick Cicek

Jack Studnicka’s stint with the Vancouver Canucks proved to be a brief one, as the speedy forward was traded to the San Jose Sharks in what amounts to a minor league deal. In exchange, the Sharks sent Nick Cicek and a 2024 sixth-round pick to the Canucks. Studnicka, 24, spent most of the season with AHL Abbotsford, contributing one goal and six assists in nine games.

Despite a strong training camp and initial NHL roster placement, Studnicka was reassigned to the AHL as the Canucks’ forward ranks regained full health. Having scored one goal in five NHL games this season, his transition from a junior top scorer to the NHL has faced challenges.

Nick Cicek news

On the other side of the deal, Nick Cicek, a 23-year-old defenseman, has played 18 games with the AHL’s San Jose Barracuda this season, recording three points. He made his NHL debut with the Sharks last season, tallying four assists in 16 games. Known for his robust defensive style, Cicek, who played junior hockey for the Portland Winterhawks, is set to bolster the Abbotsford lineup.

Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin expressed gratitude to Studnicka and welcomed Cicek as a valuable addition for Abbotsford’s development.
