- One of Coming Down The Pipe!'s mockups of the first round has the Chicago Blackhawks taking Werek in the first round, 28th overall.
- Werek is No. 41 in TSN's final draft rankings.
- Ryan Kennedy at The Hockey News sees Werek as a second-round steal:
"A highly recruited scoring pivot who played Jr. A with 2008 second-rounder Corey Trivino, Werek’s Ontario League career got off to a spotty start, as did the entire Fronts’ organization this season. But once Doug Gilmour came to town as coach, Werek was unleashed and his stock is bouncing back."
