Read: Where Danny Syvret Could Have An Impact

In a chat with the Saratogian, after he was traded to the Rangers, Danny Syvret said that he is looking forward to a fresh start with a new organization and that he is looking to give himself the best possible chance to make the team out of training camp.

He added that if he is assigned to the Whale he will embrace the role of being a mentor to the young players

Michael Cignoli, of the Saratogian, writes that Syvret is an elite AHL defenseman who can play important minutes, run a power play and lead by example.

His coach with the Flyers AHL team, former NHL coach Terry Murray said of Syvret”he’s one of the players on the back end that has that double, triple option when he has the puck on his stick. He can see the different open guys under pressure and he does a very good job on breakouts. He does a very good job on the transition.”

Murray added that Syvret is a big mentor to young players and sets the proper kind of example.

Syvret told the Wolf Pack website that he looks to add offense on the blue line and that he thinks the style that he plays is similar to that of Brian Leetch.
