March 2020 – Studenic bounced back over the past six weeks with 11 points in his last 16 games as Binghamton has pushed into a playoff spot. With more time, the right-winger has shown the ability to utilize his above-average shot. The pause could not have come at the worst time but Studenic showed the promise seen in the OHL with Hamilton.  Chris Wassel

January 2020 – Studenic has endured some injuries and inconsistent play this year and that is why his numbers are so off. Six points in 21 games are troubling but shots and scoring chances are nearly the same as last year. Give him some more time and the production should start to return.  Chris Wassel 

March 2019 – Studenic still carries a lot of speed and has worked hard on improving facets of his game — particularly working on his shot, skating, and puck pursuit. It has shown as his first full season in the AHL is going decent enough. Studenic tallied 27 points in 54 games so far. His shot volume is about 1.3 a game but he is the second leading scorer on the team. The playmaking is what has surprised some of the Binghamton coaches. His ceiling is a middle-six forward who can score some points. Consistency is less of an issue but something Studenic needs to work on. He is only 20 and still has time to develop more of his game. Chris Wassel

July 2017 – Blazing fast, smooth and elusive on skates, Studenic is highly gifted with the puck and an above average stick handler. The Slovak right wing displays sharp on-ice vision and can direct an offense with his playmaking, but can be inconsistent at times and bow under physical pressure. He’s played a great deal against older competition, so this may be part of the 18-year-old’s learning curve. He’s an asset on defense, especially when slowing opponents and blocking lanes with his stick work. With a knack for pressuring opponents and using his speed to hang close, he can hurry opponents into making turnovers. Finished last year, his first in North America while skating with Hamilton, with 18 goals and 12 assists in 58 OHL contests. Kevin Wickersham
