Dalibor Dvorsky can’t seem to keep his name out of the headlines.

Dvorsky, the prized first-round pick in the 2023 draft, has been vocal about his intention to compete for a roster spot for the St. Louis Blues for the 2024-25 season.

General manager Doug Armstrong has alluded to the fact that out of all the prospects, he most likely has the best shot to see this dream come to fruition.

On Wednesday, Dvorsky was honored with a spot on the OHL First All-Star Team.

Dvorsky has the drive and motivation to succeed.

Does he have the skills?

If his play in 2023-24 was any sign of his talent and future performance with the St. Louis Blues, fans in St. Louis could be in for an exciting journey.

Dvorsky shined with the Sudbury Wolves, playing in 52 games, scoring 45 goals, recording 43 assists, and finishing with a total of 88 points.

The numbers highlight his extreme talent and scoring threat. Dvorsky, who turns 19, may not be guaranteed to suit up for the Blues next season, but based on Armstrong’s comments and the excitement surrounding his name and recent recognitions, there is a strong possibility that the young skater will become part of the official roster next year.

A second St. Louis Blues player earned a spot on the OHL Third All-Star Team.

Defenseman Michael Buchinger, a third-round selection in the 2022 draft, played well in the 2023-24 season.

Buchinger suited up for the Guelph Storm and recorded 47 points, highlighted by his 37 assists, in 52 games.

His previous two seasons showed his potential, with 67 points in 2022-23 and 44 points in 2021-22.

His ability to stay consistent sets him apart as an intriguing prospect for the upcoming years.
