Last month, Svejkovsky was traded by the Vancouver Giants to the Medicine Hat Tigers where he has produced 10 points in 14 games, including seven goals.

His path to junior hockey included time in the former Seafair Minor Hockey Association where his father — former NHL defenceman Yogi Svejkovsky — was their longtime skills coach. 

Lukas then played for the Delta Hockey Academy’s Bantam Prep and Elite 15 teams before joining the Wenatchee Wild of the BC Hockey League.

He went on to sign with the Giants after being their second round pick in the WHL Bantam Draft.
