March 13--Petri Skriko

Petri Skriko

Selected by Vancouver Canucks round 8 #157 overall 1981 NHL Entry Draft.
Nicknamed "The Streak" because of his streaky scoring exploits, Skriko was a consistent 30 goal threat in the NHL. Though most of his goals came in bunches followed by long dry spells, Skriko scored 38, 33, 30 and 30 goals in 4 years with the Vancouver Canucks. When he wasn't scoring in bunches, he was, to put it bluntly, below average. A suspect defensive player with little muscle to work the boards, Skriko accomplished little when he wasn't scoring.
Petri quickly dropped off the NHL scene once he left Vancouver. His short stint in Boston was followed by brief appearances in Winnipeg and San Jose. Ultimately, he returned home to Finland, where he represented the country once again at the 1992 Olympics and in the Finnish Elite League.
