The younger brother of Edmonton Oilers prospect Danny Syvret.
2007-08: Syvret is a key member of one of the top defensive units in the OHL with the Guelph Storm, which allowed the fourth fewest goals of any team by season’s end (180). Despite battling lingering illness which limited his games played once again this season (48), Syvret was still an able contributor, with seven goals and eleven assists. Though his scoring pace fell significantly below what it was last season, Syvret’s best days are still ahead of him.
Rock solid defensively. At 6’2 195 lbs, he has good mobility and does not shy from physical play. Good communication on the ice to his defensive partner. Makes a good outlet pass.
Syvret must be signed by the Panthers by June 1, 2009 or will reenter the NHL entry draft.
Syvret may well be a better pro than a junior player, so he'll catch on somewhere if he isn't signed.
