May 2022 – Not only did the Vancouver Giants make the WHL playoffs, they pulled off a huge upset by beating the heavily favored Everett Silvertips in the first round before going down to the Kamloops Blazers in the second round. Zach Ostapchuk was a big part of that as he finished with seven goals and 16 assists in 12 games. Expectations will be high for him next season. Grant Campbell

April 2022 – The 18-year-old Ostapchuk will look to finish the 2021-22 with the Vancouver Giants of the WHL on a good note, as they will not be playoff bound. After a stretch of five goals in three games, he is up to 24 goals in 57 games and currently leads the Giants in that category with three games left in the regular season. Ostapchuk will more than likely be back in the WHL next season and could put up some pretty good numbers at 19-years-old. Grant Campbell

 

July 2021- With the 39th overall pick in the 2021 NHL draft, the Ottawa Senators selected Ostapchuk from the Vancouver Giants. Ostapchuk fits the Senators brand of play style quite well, as he brings a physical presence on to the ice every time he hops over the boards, which paired with his powerful stride and strong offensive instincts make him a challenging player to defend. He seems like a pretty safe NHLer as he can be relied upon to fill a role on pretty much any line. That being said, it will be interesting to follow his development over the next couple of seasons to see if he can find a level of consistency that turns him into a high-end producer at the next level.
