12th year defenseman Danny Syvret(5) decides to hang up the skates after a pair of seasons in Germany last skating for Nurnberg Ice Tigers scoring 3 goals and 17 assists in 55 DEL games, then adding another 4 assists in 13 playoff matchups.

He has 644 AHL games to his credit and has been a part of 12 different clubs and had three straight 40+ point seasons but his best was a career high 12 goals and 45 assists with Philadelphia Phantoms in 2008/2009, the teams last year of existence.

The 32-year old former 2005 OHL and Memorial Cup Champion when he was with London Knights could easily transition into coaching if he decides to go that route.

Danny Syrvet












Hartford Wolf Pack 9th year veteran defenseman Danny Syvret(25) is quickly approaching his third straight 40-point AHL season (9 goals, 30 assists).

He was traded in the second season of his two-year deal with Philadelphia Flyers, his third contract with the team, to New York Rangers and reassigned to their farm club in Connecticut, where he’s played 67 contests in 2013/2014.

The stocky-looking 5’11” 205 lbs. d-man has skated in 59 NHL games, putting up a modest 3 goals and 4 assists but hasn’t paid a visit to the show since late 2011.

He’s considered a top-two pairing blue liner in the minors but given a full campaign may play a fairly strong role as a bottom six, seventh guy in the lineup more than watching from the sidelines.

Danny Syvret(25) St. Louis Blues


Last season veteran defenseman Danny Syvret(25) found himself playing for 4 different teams (including two stints in the NHL for 10 games).

He’s packing his bags again, as he signed a one-year, two-way contract for ’11/’12 with St. Louis.

I could see him getting more of a chance to play with with the Blues than in the AHL with Peoria.
