Playing career

Syvret spent his junior career with the London Knights of the OHL, eventually being named team captain. In his final year of junior hockey, he was Captain of a powerhouse team that broke numerous junior hockey records and won the 2005 Memorial Cup, and is considered one of the most dominant junior teams in history. Syvret was the recipient of the OHL and CHL Defenceman Of The Year in 2005. Danny also made another mark on history when he was part of the Canadian World Junior team that won it all back in 2005, tallying the game winning goal.

Syvret made his professional debut with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL, but was called up to the NHL just seven games into the 2005–06 NHL season because of injuries to Oilers defencemen Cory Cross, Marc-André Bergeron and Igor Ulanov. On February 26, 2007, Syvret was recalled by the Oilers after spending the majority of the season with the Grand Rapids Griffins. Syvret finished the 2006–07 season with the Oilers.

On June 6, 2008, he was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Ryan Potulny. He was sent to the Philadelphia Phantoms in the American Hockey League but was recalled by the Flyers on March 26, 2009.[1]

Syvret scored his first NHL goal at the 2010 NHL Winter Classic when the Boston Bruins defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 in overtime at Fenway Park.
