June 2023 – Myatovic was selected 33rd overall by the the Anaheim Ducks. Pat Quinn

 

June 2023 – Myatovic is an interesting prospect as he played an important role on the WHL champions, the Seattle Thunderbirds, as a complimentary hard-nosed powerforward. His motor is a real strength, he doggedly pursues loose pucks and is a very active defender in his own zone. With the puck on his stick, Myatovic can be quite linear and he does not have the adaptability and dynamism that fellow draft-eligible teammate Gracyn Sawchyn has in spades. His release is a clear strength, however, as it projects as an above-average NHL shot with impressive timing, though he often relies on a bit of space to get it off. Skating and processing speed are likely his biggest weaknesses at the moment and they will need to be worked on to unlock tangible NHL value, but his ability to elevate skilled linemates and do all the dirty work at both ends of the ice gives him upside in a complimentary third-line role with significant development and refinement.
