Playing career[edit]

Bodnarchuk played junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Halifax Mooseheads. He was drafted by the Bruins in the 5th round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.[1] After spending most of the 2009–10 season with the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League, Bodnarchuk made his NHL debut on April 3, 2010, in a 2-1 overtime victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs.[2]

On July 6, 2012, Bodnarchuk signed as a free agent to a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Kings.[3] He was assigned to American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, in which he later won the Calder Cup with in the 2014–15 season.

On July 2, 2015, Bodnarchuk left the Kings organization as a free agent and signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.[4] Following a promising training camp in Columbus, he was assigned to begin the 2015–16 season with AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters. In 14 games, Bodnarchuk was leading the Monsters defence on the top pairing, contributing with 8 points, before he was recalled to the Blue Jackets on November 21, 2015.[5] He made his debut with Columbus, playing his first NHL game since 2010, in a 5-3 defeat against the San Jose Sharks the following day.[6] In his 11th career game, Bodnarchuk recorded his first NHL point in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Florida Panthers on December 4, 2015.[7]

Bodnarchuk played in 16 games with the Blue Jackets before he was placed on waivers in order to return to the Monsters. On January 5, 2016, Bodnarchuck was claimed off of waivers by the Colorado Avalanche.[8] He made his debut with the Avalanche playing alongside defensive partner Francois Beauchemin in a 4-3 victory over the St. Louis Blues on January 6, 2016.[9]

At the conclusion of his contract, Bodnarchuk left the Avalanche as a free agent to sign a two-year, two-way contract with the Dallas Stars on July 1, 2016.[10]
