Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Brandon Bochenski
Brandon Bochenski was born April 4, 1982 in Blaine, Minnesota. The seventh round, 223rd overall selection of the Ottawa Senators in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Bochenski is a graduate of the WCHA's North Dakota Fighting Sioux.

An offensively gifted forward, Bochenski played three seasons at UND registering 154 points (79-75-154) before opting to forego his senior year in order to turn professional. Following an impressive collegiate career at UND which saw Bochenski capture numerous honours, the Blaine, Minnesota native went on to suit up for the Senators AHL affiliate in Binghamton in 2004-05.

In his first season as a pro, Bochenski won the AHL rookie scoring race with 70 points (34-36-70) and was named to the AHL's All-Rookie Team before making his NHL debut with Ottawa in 2005-06. Despite his strong play in the pre-season, Bochenski continued to hone his skills in the AHL, while seeing limited action with Ottawa before having his rights acquired by the Chicago Blackhawks at the 2006 NHL trading deadline.

As a member of the Blackhawks, Bochenski would spend most of his time with the team's AHL club in Norfolk while seeing action in 10 games with the Blackhawks.

In February of 2007, Bochenski was sent to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Kris Versteeg and a conditional draft selection. Bocehenski's stint with the Bruins was short lived however as the club opted to trade the winger to the Anaheim Ducks on January 2, 2008. He spent 12 games with the Ducks before he was dealt by the club to the Nashville Predators. After a handful of games in Nashville, Bochenski signed as a free agent with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the summer of 2008.
