November 2012 – Tvrdon was off to a hot start in the 2012-13 season with 22 points in 18 games for the rebuilding Vancouver Giants. Unfortunately his season has come to a startling halt as he had to have surgery for a blockage in his left shoulder. The injury will end his season, but he is expected to fully recover and continue his hockey career next year – Zenon Herasymiuk
July 2012 – Has officially signed his three year entry level contract. He is eligible and of size to play for Grand Rapids, but may be re-assigned back to Vancouver WHL, to continue development and allow his contract to slide for a year. Jason Banks
June, 2012 – Marek Tvrdon is a big power forward with good hands that one day can fill the roles currently occupied by Johan Franzen and Tomas Holmstrom in Detroit. He has all of the tools to be a good presence around the net in the NHL but like other Red Wings’ prospects he is several years away from getting his chance to shine. This past season he potted 31 goals and 74 points in 60 games for Vancouver of the WHL. Look for him to spent one more year in the WHL followed by two or three years of AHL development before beginning his NHL career on a depth line in Detroit. - Eric Daoust
April 2012 – a big rangy forward that uses his size and skill in combination to wreak havoc on opposing defenses. He lacks the speed and physicality to be completely dominant but it looks like the Red Wings may have stolen another European late in the draft. Tvrdon scored 74 points in 60 games for the Vancouver Giants and also scored four points in six games for Team Slovakia at the WJC. Not NHL ready quite yet, so he should be back in the WHL next season.
Fantasy Outlook: C+
Solid size and skill, needs to get more physical.
Tvrdon nets a beauty:
