September 2022 – After starting last season in the J20 Nationell with 23 points in 13 games, Dvorsky has set the bar high for himself. The hot streak at the start of his J20 career eventually did cool down, but he finished the season with 40 points in 33 games, one of the best totals for a D-1 player in the league in recent years. With an equal number of goals and assists last season, Dvorsky has an evenly-balanced and wildly talented offensive toolbox.

At even strength, Dvorsky’s stellar vision and accurate passing are obvious. He consistently impresses with his ability to move the puck through traffic, whether it’s on his stick or with a pass. His confidence is typically a positive, but he occasionally gets too fancy with the puck and creates turnovers. Unforced errors like those are common among players his age and should decrease as he gains maturity and experience at higher levels of play. Though he is often circling in the offensive zone to create space, Dvorsky’s office is the right faceoff dot. He lurks along the right half-wall, especially on the powerplay. He is always calling for the puck and his teammates, no matter if he’s in HockeyAllsvenskan, the J20 Nationell, or representing Slovakia, know to move it to him. From there, he will either go for his preference, a quick-release one-timer or patiently move into a better angle for a wrist shot. Last season, nine of his 13 power-play goals were scored from within the right faceoff circle. His 6-1, 190 pound frame lends itself to physical play, especially at the U20 level, and he is finally going towards his fullest potential in that area. While he used to seem more physically overpowered, the beginning of this season has marked a development. He’s playing harder than ever before along the boards and in front of the net. The one place that Dvorsky leaves something to be desired is in his skating. He’s agile and doesn’t have an odd stride but fails to bring the explosiveness that one would expect from a top-10 pick, especially in a class as deep as 2023. While the major strengths in the rest of his game detract from this weakness, even a little more power in his skating would take his game up to the next level. He certainly has the muscle to do this, but it is an area for improvement at this time. Alexa Potack
