Playing career

Musil started his career in the Western Hockey League (WHL) in a circuitous fashion, as he was initially passed over in the league's bantam draft because he was not living in Canada. Knowing the family would soon be moving to Vancouver, his father Frank approached the Vancouver Giants about "listing" Musil to obtain his rights. After this news became public, other teams in the WHL protested, and the league decided to hold a lottery draft specifically to determine Musil's initial destination in the league. The Kootenay Ice won the draft, and Musil's WHL rights. They promptly traded him to Vancouver, as Musil had made it clear he wished to play in his new hometown.

During his rookie season in the WHL, Musil played in 71 games with the Giants, scoring 7 goals and adding 25 assists. Vancouver's director of player personnel, James Ripplinger, praised Musil's play during the season, "His poise with the puck when being pressured, not making any mistakes; he was such a reliable player."

During the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, he got drafted in the second round, 31st overall by the Edmonton Oilers. On June 30, 2012, he signed his entry-level contract (three years) with the Oilers. During the 2014–15 season, the Oilers recalled him and he made his NHL debut on April 4, 2016 against the Calgary Flames. He recorded his first point, an assist in his second game.

Personal life

He is the son of former NHL player Frank Musil. His uncle, Bobby Holík, also played in the NHL, and his grandfather, Jaroslav Holík, competed in ice hockey at the 1972 Winter Olympics with the Czechoslovakia national ice hockey team. His mother, Andrea Holíková, was an accomplished tennis player. His brother, Adam, currently plays for the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League and was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
