Dvorak is a raw defenseman who still needs to grow into his large frame, but who could turn into a solid in-zone defender with a consistently strong first-pass.

May 2023 – Dvorak plays a fairly simple unspectacular brand of hockey. He makes simple quick passes to advance play and is a plus-level skater with strong fluidity, edgework, and power. He’s a fairly good scanner who keeps track of threats in the defensive zone, but who can be somewhat passive in engaging those threats, especially off the rush. His handling, creativity, playmaking, and dynamic ability are all quite limit and make his defensive game the core of his NHL projectability. He prescans well on retrievals and typically remains composed under pressure in control, finding the easiest outlet option to diffuse pressure. He projects best as a bottom-pairing piece, but advancements in his passing game, consistency, and aggressiveness could unlock #4 potential. Sebastian High
