2018 Fantasy Outlook
When it comes to American skaters currently operating at hockey's highest level, only Alex DeBrincat of the Blackhawks has exceeded Dvorak's gaudy 1.54 points-per-game output in the history of the OHL. Naturally, the Illinois native only required seven games in the minors before the Coyotes let him loose in a full-time capacity. He's since turned in two consecutive 15-goal seasons with his assist totals at 33 and 37, respectively, but perhaps the most exciting trend of all is that Dvorak went from hoisting 88 shots in his rookie campaign to a robust 151 mark in 2017-18. While 2018 Calder Trophy finalist Clayton Keller seems to be all the rage in the desert, there's bang-for-your-buck potential in drafting Dvorak, who secured a six-year, $26.7 million extension in August.

Out indefinitely with pectoral injury

October 19, 2018
Dvorak will be sidelined indefinitely after undergoing surgery Friday for a torn pectoral muscle.
ANALYSIS
Dvorak was reportedly making progress in his return from a lower-body injury that kept him shelved to begin the campaign, but he injured his pectoral during practice and will now have to start rehab over for the new issue. Per Craig Morgan of The Athletic, Coyotes general manager disclosed it would be "a number of months" before Dvorak is fully recovered.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2015
Dvorak finished his rookie season with a respectable 33 points (15 goals) through 78 contests while averaging 15:37 of ice time. Considering he made the jump to the NHL immediately after winning a Memorial Cup Championship with London, his quick acclimatization to the highest level was impressive. However, there are still plenty of shortcomings, and Dvorak is a long way away from being a serviceable fantasy asset in the majority of settings. He registered just 88 shots and recorded a crippling 43.9 Corsi For percentage. The 20-year-old forward owns plenty of offensive upside and projects to show gradual statistical improvement as Arizona's core of young talents become more established in the league.
Dvorak is coming off a great season for OHL London, where he posted 41 goals and 109 points, outscoring fellow Coyotes prospect Max Domi. The winger has an outside chance to make the Coyotes, but is most likely ticketed for another season in the OHL to work on his game and potentially play for Team USA at the World Junior Championship. He has the kind of high-end offensive talent the Coyotes covet as they rebuild for the future.
