Playing Career[edit | edit source]
On March 3, 2010, the Panthers traded Bartkowski, along with Dennis Seidenberg, to the Boston Bruins for Byron Bitz, Craig Weller, and a 2nd round 2010 NHL Entry Draft choice. On April 29, 2010, Bartkowski was then signed to a two-year entry with the Bruins.
On January 10, 2011, Bartkowski made his NHL debut for the Boston Bruins against his hometown team, the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bruins went on to win the game 4-2, with Bartkowski registering 2 penalty minutes.
On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup in game 7 against the Vancouver Canucks. Bartkowski got to take part in the Bruins celebration and he also got to raise the Stanley Cup without playing a single playoff game with the Bruins. He will not, however, have his name engraved on the Stanely Cup, as a player to have his name inscribed must have played at least 41 games for the championship team during the regular season (provided the player remains with the team when they win the Cup) or played in at least one game of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Notable Honors[edit | edit source]
- Selected as a member of the USHL First All-Star Team (2008).
- Selected as a member of the CCHA All-Rookie Team (2009)
