Was one of a handful of non-OHL players selected to play for Team Ontario in the Under 17 Championship in 2001 and he brought home a bronze medal. Was named to the OHL first team all rookie team in 2002-03.
Was invited to the Team Canada Evaluation camp in the summer of 2004 and made the final roster for the 2004-05 World Junior tournament. He took home a gold medal and scored the winning goal in the Gold medal game.
Had been overlooked in his first two NHL drafts. His plus minus totals over his last two seasons in the OHL were among the best in the league. He played a big role in back to back record-breaking seasons for the London Knights.
2007-08: Syvret began the season in Springfield (AHL), where he appeared in 36 games before being loaned to Hershey. He scored a total of two goals and 18 assists for 20 points.
The worst thing you can say about Syvret is that he will never be 6’3 and 215 pounds. His strong skating is rarely noticed, as he doesn’t get caught out of position much and with a talented group of forwards in front of him, he doesn’t have to carry the puck up ice. He makes good passes and knows when to take the safe play off the glass. He didn’t have much of a shot in his first two seasons in the league and tended to pass the puck off to teammates, but in his final year in the league he has developed a strong one timer and has been excellent at moving off the point deep into the offensive zone and burying some chances. Syvret is not big, but has strong legs and takes care of his own end with his smarts, positioning and skating ability. Despite the knock on him for his lack of size, he has never missed an OHL game due to injury and he plays big minutes for London.
