May 2022 – The Penguins 2020 fourth-round pick was amongst the best players in the WHL as an overager, finally having the dominant campaign expected of him. He recently signed his ELC and will likely step immediately into Wilkes-Barre’s top nine and fight for a place on the PP1. The question with Svejkovsky when the Penguins drafted him was whether or not he could compensate for his 5-foot-9, 170-pound frame, and that question still remains unanswered. He has a refined offensive skill set, can make space for himself with his hands, and his shot is NHL quality. He possesses good skating technique and speed and is engaged in all three zones. However, he does not have one skill or trait that separates him from the pack, and his production has never been exceptional. Time will tell if he can be more than a career minor leaguer. Kyle Watson

October 2021 – The winger has started the WHL season on a tear. He has scored seven goals in his first six games – good enough for first in the league – and has recorded two separate four-point games. Kyle Watson

October 2020 – The Penguins selected Svejkovsky in the fourth round, 108th overall in the 2020 NHL Draft. He is known for his high hockey sense and ability to create space for a goal-scoring opportunity. Clare McManus
