Gawryletz played Junior hockey with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the British Columbia Hockey League and became the first Smoke Eater to be selected straight from the BCHL when he was drafted 253rd overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. He was then recruited to the University of Minnesota-Duluth to play collegiate hockey in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. Selected for his size by the Flyers, Gawryletz developed into a physical defensive defenseman among the Bulldogs d-corps and in his four-year career with Duluth, Travis appeared in 140 games with only 23 points.
Unsigned from the Flyers after completing his college career Gawryletz signed as a free agent with the Elmira Jackals of the East Coast Hockey League before attending the AHL's Rochester Americans training camp prior to his first professional season in 2008–09. Gawryletz established himself within the Jackals with gritty defensive play and posted 16 points in 56 games to be named the Jackals top defenseman for the season.
Gawryletz was again invited to the Amerks AHL training camp but re-signed with the Jackals to start the 2009–10 season. Leading the Jackals and placing second in the ECHL in plus/minus after 16 games, he was loaned to make his AHL debut with the Lake Erie Monsters on November 27, 2010. Gawryletz's solid contributions on the blueline meant he remained with the Monsters for the duration of their season, leading all defenseman and placing second on the team with a plus/minus of 11, before returning to Elmira for the ECHL playoffs.
In mid-April, on the back of a successful season, Gawryletz signed a one-year contract to return to the Lake Erie Monsters for the 2010–11 season.
