Czarnik was signed by the Boston Bruins as an undrafted free agent March 31, 2015. He played four seasons of NCAA Division I hockey for the Miami RedHawks (2011-15) and made the CCHA All-Conference First Team after he had 40 points (14 goals, 26 assists) in 42 games as a sophomore in 2012-13.

Before the start of his junior season, the 5-foot-9 center was named captain and responded with 47 points (13 goals, 34 assists) in 37 games. He helped Miami make the NCAA Tournament during his senior year.

Although Czarnik made the Bruins roster prior to the 2016-17 season, he was reassigned to Providence of the American Hockey League after going scoreless in two games and being a healthy scratch for another. Upon his return to fill in for an injured David Backes, Czarnik scored his first NHL goal in a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Oct. 26, 2016. He played 10 games for Boston in 2017-18 and 64 in Providence, where he had 69 points (25 goals, 44 assists).
