25-Year-Old Left WingLW
Arizona Coyotes
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Dvorak returned to full health and set a career high in goals (18) and points (38) while playing in all 70 of the Coyotes' games in 2019-20. That also came with a bump in power-play usage, where he averaged 2:44 per contest and recorded 10 of his points. Dvorak suffered a separated shoulder in the playoffs, but that injury isn't expected to affect the forward's readiness for 2020-21. The American operated mostly as a center last season, and he'll likely challenge a 40-point pace if he can stay healthy during the upcoming campaign. He's worth a look in the later rounds of standard fantasy drafts. Read Past Outlooks

Critical in comeback win
LWArizona Coyotes
February 22, 2021
Dvorak scored twice in Monday's 4-3 win over the Ducks.
ANALYSIS
His first goal came on a penalty shot he earned after baiting Jakob Silfverberg into a hook while the Coyotes were shorthanded. Dvorak then put them ahead with a power-play goal in the third period, deflecting a Jakob Chychrun shot past John Gibson. It was a much-needed burst for Dvorak, who had gone five games without a point. It's no coincidence the Coyotes picked up just one win that span -- Dvorak's been a big part of their offense with nine goals and 15 points through 18 appearances this season.

2015
Dvorak lost the first five months of 2018-19 to injury, as he entered the year with a lower-body concern before requiring surgery on a torn pectoral muscle. It took the 23-year-old some time to get up to speed, as he finished with two goals and five assists in 20 games while averaging 14:23 per game. Dvorak had 70 points over his first two seasons -- recording 15 tallies in each -- and could be poised for a breakout this year. The Illinois native has often been used as a center but can also play on the wing, and if all goes well, a 40-plus-point season could be on the way for the American.
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.
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.
