Twarynski is having a great season with the Kelowna Rockets in the WHL. He has 70 points (43 goals, 27 assists) in 66 games. He had just 88 points in 131 games over the past two seasons with Kelowna and the Calgary Hitmen. He was teammates with Travis Sanheim in Calgary from 2014 to 2016.
He isn’t a highly-skilled prospect, as his offensive outburst this season is more due to his age and experience than his true skillset, but he has the tools to become a bottom-six NHL forward and has earned a chance with his play this season.
Twarynski has good size (6’2″, 201 pounds), can skate, and has some grit to his game. He likely projects as a bottom-six winger in the NHL that can add some scoring punch here and there.
Twarynski has been at Flyers Development Camp in each of the last two summers and has appeared in one game for the Flyers in each of the last two preseasons.
The forward will likely join the Lehigh Valley Phantoms when his WHL season ends on an amateur tryout contract. His entry-level contract begins next season.
