Peter Cehlárik (born 2 August 1995) is a Slovak professional ice hockey forward currently playing for Leksands IF in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). He was selected by the Boston Bruins in the 3rd round (90th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Cehlárik played four junior seasons in his native Slovakia, before opting to continue his development in Sweden. He made his Elitserien debut playing with Luleå HF during the 2012–13 Elitserien season.[1] He helped the team win the Champions Hockey League during the 2014–15 season.[2]

After playing 132 games adding 22 goals and 49 points over a span of four seasons with Luleå, he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins on 16 June 2016.[3] He made his NHL debut on 11 February 2017 against the Vancouver Canucks.[4] He played 11 games for Boston Bruins before returning to Providence Bruins.[5]

Cehlárik scored his first NHL goal on 18 November 2017 with the Bruins as the first Boston goal in a road game against the San Jose Sharks, in what would become a 3–1 Boston victory.[6][7]

After Cehlárik was left off Boston's Return to Play roster, as an impending restricted free agent from the Bruins, Cehlárik halted his North American career and signed a two-year contract with Swedish club, Leksands IF of the SHL, on 17 August 2020.[8]
