Svozil is a two-way defenseman with a balanced and powerful stride that makes him tough to beat in man coverage and when attacking on the rush. His wide stance and smooth edgework allows him to defend transition chances very aggressively, and awareness and active stick help him break up odd-man chances and move the puck out of the defensive zone quickly. Svozil’s agility and lateral mobility help him cover a lot of ground in the neutral zone, particularly when defending the rush. He makes an accurate first pass but has the poise and puck protection skill to beat the first forechecker with his feet when on the breakout. He has good vision from the point and shows comfort using fakes to open passing lanes and his edges to move along the blue line. His strides are smooth but lack maximum extension, hindering his acceleration in open ice. He displays good poise with the puck but hasn’t shown enough aggressiveness in the offensive end, and it shows in his low point production across multiple levels last season. Coming over to the WHL and smaller ice surface, the challenge will be for Svozil to prove he can make quicker decisions with the puck and sustain his effective rush defense over big minutes for Regina. Also, a role on the Pats’ power play could tap into some offensive upside. Svozil has the skating and the puckhandling ability to project a future in the NHL, but the furthered development of his decision-making and speed in open ice will determine if he can become a top-four defender.
