Austin Czarnik (born December 12, 1992) is an American professional ice hockey center currently playing for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing CareerEdit

Austin played four seasons of NCAA Division I hockey for the Miami RedHawks (2011–2015). In his sophomore year at Miami University, his outstanding play was rewarded with a selection to the 2012–13 CCHA All-Conference First Team.

On June 24, 2013, prior to the start of his junior season, he was named captain of the RedHawks by head coach Enrico Blasi and held this position through the end of his senior season.

Days after Miami was eliminated from the 2015 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Tournament and his college career had come to a close, Austin signed an entry-level deal with the Boston Bruins on March 31, 2015. He was assigned to the Bruins' AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins.

Prior to the 2016–17 NHL season, Austin made the Boston Bruins' roster out of training camp, making his NHL debut on October 13, 2016 for the Bruins' 6–3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.

However, after two scoreless games and one healthy scratch with Boston, Ausin was reassigned to Providence on October 20, 2016, but after David Backes sustained an elbow injury, Boston recalled him on October 26, 2016.

During a game that same day, Austin tallied his first NHL goal against the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist in a 5–2 loss for the Bruins.
