Adam Sykora (born September 7, 2004) is a Slovakian ice hockey player, recently playing for HK Nitra of the premier Slovakian league. He was a member of the Slovakian team that captured silver in the Hlinka Gretzky Cup, and added a gold medal in the U18 World Junior Championship (D1A). Sykora was selected 63rd overall by the New York Rangers in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.
Sykora recorded 10 goals and 17 points in 46 games last season with HK Nitra, showcasing his quick speed and defensive awareness to become one of the better two-way players in the league. While undersized, he models his game after Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins, a player who is also smaller in frame but isn’t afraid to go into the dirty areas. Sykora is likely to return to HK Nitra for the 2022-23 season.
