History

2006-07: Sceviour had 38 points on 12 goals in his third season with the Portland Winter Hawks in 49 games. His 38 points is more than four times his point total from last year, having played nine more games. Sceviour was chosen in the fourth round, 112th overall, of the 2007 NHl Draft by the Dallas Stars.

2007-08: Sceviour got 17 games into the season for Portland (WHL) before getting dealt to Lethbridge (WHL) where he was able to excel, setting career highs in goals and points in his 52-game stint with the Hurricanes alone.  His 31 goals were just three short of the team leaders but Sceviour played in 20 fewer games.  He then picked up the playmaking during the playoffs, registering 10 assists and 13 points in 19 games as he helped Lethbridge to an Eastern Conference Championship.

2008-09: In his first full season with the Lethbridge Hurricanes(WHL) Sceviour scored 29 goals and added 51 assists in 69 games. In the playoffs, Sceviour added 7 points in 11 games.

2009-10: Sceviour turned pro with the Texas Stars (AHL). In 80 games Sceviour scored 9 goals and added 22 assists. Sceviour also appeared in 24 games with the Stars, picking up 8 points in 24 games.

2010-11: Sceviour completed his sophomore season at the AHL level with a career high in goals (16), assists (25) and points (41) in 77 games. He plays in all situations as a two-way forward.  He moved back to center on Texas’ energetic third line (usually with Mathieu Tousignant and Ray Sawada).  He has slightly improved his game in all aspects and he continues to work at that niche role that makes him an NHL option.  He’s become a reliable faceoff man and takes the team’s crucial draws.

2011-12: Sceviour made his NHL debut with Dallas – appearing in a February game against the Flyers and finishing minus-one while taking 10 shifts in 5:09 minutes of ice time. He spent the bulk of the season with Stars AHL affiliate Texas and was the Texas Stars' third-leading scorer. He scored 21 goals with 32 assists in 75 games and was minus-eight with 25 penalty minutes. Texas missed the AHL playoffs; finishing last in the West Division. Sceviour was tendered a qualifying offer by the Stars and signed a one-year contract with Dallas in July of 2012.

 

Talent Analysis

Sceviour has good offensive instincts and a very good shot.  He has shown himself to be more of a goal scorer than a playmaker.  He uses his size and grit along the boards to generate scoring chances.  He’s a sound two-way player that shows good determination at both ends of the ice.  Finishes his checks well and effectively.  Understands the team concept of the game.  It remains to be seen if he has the natural talent to be a regular offensive contributor at the NHL level; just in case, developing an even stronger physical and defensive game would be to his advantage.

Potential: 3rd line two-way forward, like a smaller version of Adam Hall.

 

Future

Will compete for a spot in Dallas, otherwise will end up back in the AHL.

Past the quarter pole, the Stars seem more than competent. They stand second in the division and fifth in the tight Western Conference.
