Quoth the NHL:
Okay, so the NHL sees this as a signing for the big-league club. But with Ian Cole or Nikita Nikitin playing in Peoria, and Kent Huskins studying for the role of Healthy Scratch, Syvret will find it hard to break into the Blues' lineup.
At the AHL level, Syvret has been a decent offensive defenseman. Again from the nhl.com story:
He spent most of the season with the AHL's Syracuse Crunch and Adirondack Phantoms, finishing with 10 goals and 40 points in 59 games.
Doug Armstrong has apparently replaced Nathan Oystrick with a guy who puts up better numbers. That's got to be good news in the PEO.
