Playing career

Pysyk was the first-ever draft pick of the current incarnation of the Edmonton Oil Kings when he was selected third overall in the 2007 WHL Bantam Draft. In 2009–10 Pysyk played 48 games before being sidelined with a broken foot. Despite the injury, the Oil Kings named him their team MVP of the season. At the end of the season, he was ranked seventh among North American skaters for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau. He was selected 23rd overall by the Buffalo Sabres in the draft. Pysyk models his game after Shea Weber because of Weber's two-way playing style. Following his draft, he appeared in his first NHL training camp. After being returned to his junior team by the Sabres, Pysyk was named the captain of the Oil Kings on September 28, 2010.
