Future Watch: Christian Dvorak Rookie Hockey Cards, Coyotes

Future Watch: Christian Dvorak Rookie Hockey Cards, Coyotes – Christian Dvorak was selected by the Arizona Coyotes with the 58th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. This Illinois native is a smart, strong, and very competitive hockey player. Pre-draft, he had a injury-shortened season and that hurt his draft stock. He had first round talent but the questions that surrounded his knee injury dropped him to the Coyotes.

The year after he was drafted he had an amazing 109-point season with the London Knights in the OHL. His 41 goals had to make Arizona feel pretty good about their pick. He got a few games in with Portland, their AHL affiliate that season as well.

The next season, in 2015-16 he was the team captain and he had 52 goals and 121 points. He had 35 points in the playoffs leading his team to a Memorial Cup Championship. That season also included a stint with Team USA in the U20 World Junior Championships. He had eight points in seven games.

Last season the talk was he could make the team if he had a strong training camp. He did that and he had 15 goals and 33 points in a 78-game rookie season.

Christian Dvorak has several NHL licensed rookie cards in 2016-17 Upper Deck hockey products including a Young Guns rookie card in 2016-17 Upper Deck Hockey Series 1. He also has autographed cards in the following products:

At 21, he’s accomplished a lot. This talented pivot has All-Star potential. Here’s a look at his first NHL goal. That’s quite a dangle:

In his second season with Arizona he can reach the 50-point mark. He has some really talented teammates, youngsters with a lot of speed and that could help propel the talented prospect. Don’t look for him to have a sophomore slump. Expect the opposite.
