• He was selected to participate in the 2011 World Junior tournament for the Czech Republic, but an injury ended his chance to compete for a medal. He did compete at the 2011 Under-18 World Championships and despite a disappointing eighth place finish, was voted one of best players on the Czech Republic team.

• His father, Frantisek (38th overall by Minnesota in 1983), had 34 goals and 1,241 penalty minutes in 14 NHL seasons as a defenseman with the North Stars, Flames, Senators and Oilers. His uncle is two-time Stanley Cup champion, Bobby Holik (10th overall by Hartford in 1989), and his grandfather, Jaroslav Holik, was a long-time player and coach in the Czech Republic. His mother, Andrea, was a top tennis player, winning the girls singles title at Wimbledon in 1985 and helping then-Czechoslovakia win the Federation Cup that same year.

• Musil was born in Calgary when his dad was playing for the Flames, and also lived in Ottawa and Edmonton. He moved to the Czech Republic with his family when he was seven and played his youth hockey there until leaving to play in the Western Hockey League.
