2019 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Played through shoulder injury

Shoulder
August 21, 2020
Dvorak played through a separated shoulder he suffered midway through the Coyotes' qualifying-round series against the Predators, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
ANALYSIS
That might explain why Dvorak's production fell off a cliff after Game 3 of Arizona's qualifying-round series win over Nashville. The 24-year-old winger picked up two goals and an assist through the Coyotes' first three postseason contests before failing to tally a point in his team's final six postseason games. Dvorak, who notched 18 goals and 38 points in 70 games during the regular season, should be back to full health in time for training camp, which is tentatively scheduled to open in mid-November.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2015
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.
