Kurri won five Stanley Cups, all with Edmonton (1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, and 1990). His best season was 1984-85 when he had 135 points and scored 50 goals in his first 50 games, however his 50th game was the Oilers' 53rd game so it does not count as an official 50 goals in 50 games. A year later, he would lead the league in goals with 68. In 1984-85 Kurri set a record for right wingers in goals when he scored 71 goals. The record lasted for five years and was broken by Brett Hull when he scored 72 goals in 1989-90 (Hull's 86 goals in 1990-91 is the current record). The Stanley Cup The Stanley Cup (French: ) is the championship trophy of the National Hockey League (NHL), the major professional ice hockey league in Canada and the United States. ...

Kurri's 19 goals in the 1985 post-season (18 games played) tied an NHL record set by the Philadelphia Flyers' Reggie Leach in the 1976 playoffs (16 games played). He also had four hat tricks in the conference finals, another feat that no player has ever equaled. Reginald Joseph Leach (born 23 April 1950 in Riverton, Manitoba, Canada) is a retired professional ice hockey right winger who played in the NHL between 1970 and 1983. ...


During his tenure in Edmonton, he was nicknamed the "Finnish Flash" (a title since usurped by Teemu Selänne). While he was definitely a very talented player, Kurri was helped by the fact that he often played with Gretzky (every 5th goal Gretzky scored was assisted by Kurri, while he assisted on 60% of Kurri's goals). Kurri was often the recipient of Gretzky's passes, but he turned chances into goals with his brilliant finishing ability. Kurri was not a lone sniper; he was "by far our most complete player" according to Oilers' director of personnel Barry Fraser. Although Kurri never won the Selke Trophy, he was regarded as one of the best defensive forwards in the NHL. This article does not cite any references or sources. ... The Frank J. Selke Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League forward who demonstrates the most skill in the defensive component of the game. ...


Following Gretzky's trade to Los Angeles in 1988, there were those who believed Jari Kurri's success would come to an abrupt end. But over the next two years, like a man on a mission, he recorded 195 points in 154 games, leading the Oilers to their fifth Stanley Cup in 1990. Jari Kurri finished his career as the highest scoring European-born player in NHL history with totals of 601 goals, 797 assists, and 1,398 points. He also finished with 106 career playoff goals and 233 playoff points, third all-time behind only Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier. While he wasn't the flashiest player, Kurri was consistent and this ability alone enabled him to become an icon for thousands of fans and young players, both in Finland and throughout North America. [1]


He is the first Finn to be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His 1398 points are 18th all-time, and the second highest among Europeans behind Jaromir Jagr. He is 14th in all-time goals with 601. He is the second leading scorer in Oiler history, with 1,043 points in 754 games, behind only Gretzky. His #17 is retired by the Oilers and the Finnish national men's ice hockey team. Kurri is along with Wayne Gretzky to be considered one of the most famous legends in NHL icehockey history.

He has a trophy named after him in the SM-liiga, the Jari Kurri trophy. Kurri is currently the General Manager of the Finnish national men's ice hockey team. He married former Miss Finland, Vanessa Kurri, née Forsman, in 2004; they have two daughters, Odessa and Alissa, and they are currently expecting their third child together due in summer 2007. Kurri also has twin boys (Joonas and Ville) from his first marriage to Tiina Kurri. Gretzky is the godfather to Kurri's children — not surprising, as during their prime in Edmonton, Kurri was always closest to Gretzky, who himself has always been the first to acknowledge his teammates for their success, and frequently fed Kurri goal opportunities. Coming from "The Great One", the compliment "Jari and I see the game the same way"[citation needed] is very generous.

But just once, even Kurri forgot how Gretzky could fool people. The major source of proof for this comes from the 1998 NHL All-Star Game, when Kurri played for the World Team (players born outside North America), against Gretzky (now with the New York Rangers) and another former Oiler teammate, Mark Messier (Vancouver Canucks). Kurri's defensive game had by now become his primary contribution and he was now with the Colorado Avalanche. The National Hockey League All-Star Game (French: Match des Étoiles de la Ligue Nationale de Hockey) is an exhibition ice hockey game that marks the midway point of the National Hockey Leagues regular season, with many of the star players playing against each other. ...

The Vancouver Canucks are a professional ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. ... The Colorado Avalanche are a professional ice hockey team based in Denver, Colorado, United States. ...


Even while "The Spicy Finn" scored a goal, Gretzky managed to neutralize it by slipping a pass by Kurri to Messier, where the "Moose" sealed the game for the North American Team. “Wayne still fools even me,” laughed Kurri afterward. “I told him at the face-off: ‘I back-check all those years for you, and that's how you treat me?’”[citation needed] Binomial name (Linnaeus, 1758) Moose range map The moose (so named in North America, derived from Eastern Abenaki moz)[1] or elk (in Anglophone Europe), Alces alces, is the largest extant member of the deer family Cervidae, distinguished from the others by the palmate antlers of its males. ...


However, Kurri had a last laugh when he faced Gretzky on ice for the last time[citation needed], when Finland and Canada played for the Olympic Bronze medal in Nagano. Finland was the underdog against the All-star team of Canada, but eventually Finland won the game 3-2. Kurri scored the first goal of the game, which turned out to be the last goal of his professional career[2]. The mens gold medal game: Russia vs Czech Republic 1998 was the first year that featured women in ice hockey competition. ...


Lately Kurri has worked as a GM of Finnish national hockey team, scouting players and assisting the head coach.

Kurri was selected 69th overall by Edmonton in the third round of the 1980 Entry Draft.
Jari, just 20 years of age, was leaving home for the first time, moving half a world away where the language, customs and hockey were different.
Jari was traded to the New York Rangers with Marty McSorley and Shane Churla on March 14, 1996.
Edmonton Oilers Heritage Website - Jari Kurri (0 words)
Jari Kurri is not only the greatest Finnish player to ever play in the National Hockey League, he is also one of the greatest Europeans to ever play in the league, too.
Kurri was establishing himself as a solid right-winger with the famed Jokerit club out of Helsinki, but he was an unknown quantity in North America.
Kurri was named to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001—but, despite all his accomplishments, his greatest memory comes from 1984, when he held the Stanley Cup aloft for the first time.
