Dalibor Dvorsky


Dvorsky is an excellent skater. He has a pretty smooth stride that looks pretty effortless. He is good at going north/south and east/west. He uses his skating to continuously get in good position.


He is very good at passing and handling. He displays good puck handling skills and makes the right passes at the right times.


Not only does Dvorsky have a good shot but he works to get in a good position to get good shots and can score from multiples positions. Sometimes he will shoot from the faceoff dots, other times he will crash the net or the goal line.

IQ (Vision, Anticipation, Panic/Poise):

Dvorsky has a good hockey IQ. He has patience, is aware of where his teammates are and are going. If he doesn't have the puck, he will move to a good area for a pass or where the puck is likely to come.


Dalibor is good on the forecheck. He can separate the puck from the defensemen, support his teammates or be in a good position on the boards to receive a puck that comes loose.


Dvorsky is very good at getting back on defense to take the puck away or to support his defensemen when they win a puck or are making a breakout.

Best Asset:

His best asset is probably his shot. He can score from multiple places on the ice.

Biggest Concern:

Possibly his skating or defense. It's possible one or both won't be good enough to elevate him enough in the NHL.

Top Tier/Role Potential:

Tier 1 and 1C that is a PPG scorer

Justification for Top Tier Assessment:

Dvorsky's overall game may not be elite but every aspect of his game is very good which creates a great package.

50th Percentile Tier/Role:

Tier 2 and 2C that tops out at 60-70 points

Justification for 50th Percentile Tier Assessment:

Dvorsky's total skillset makes it hard to believe that he will be anything lower than a 2C which would limit his scoring ceiling. Although it's possible he will be more of a high end 2C that gets a scoring boost from being on PP1.

Stylistic Comparable:

Possibly Bo Horvat

Scouts Final Thoughts and Additional Stats/Info:

Maybe I am fooling myself and Dvorsky won't be as good as I think. He is fun to watch and has a well-rounded game. He may not be the fastest skater, but he does a pretty good job of getting around the ice and seems to have a very good work ethic and is committed to improving all the parts of his game.
