Dino Ciccarelli - 1984 O-Pee-Chee

Dino Ciccarelli (February 8, 1960-) burst into the NHL, signing with the Minnesota North Stars despite going undrafted but being eligible for the 1978 NHL Entry Draft, as he led Minnesota in playoff scoring with 14 goals and seven assists on their march to the Stanley Cup Finals against the New York Islanders (1980-81). In the four seasons prior to joining the NHL, Ciccarelli played for the London (Ontario) Knights of the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League and amassed 169 goals and 177 assists as well as 201 penalty minutes in 226 OMJHL games. He continued that gritty, hard-nosed play and knack for finding the back of the net as a member of the North Stars in the highly competitive Norris Division that included the Red Wings, Blackhawks, Blues, Jets and Maple Leafs. In his first full season in Minnesota, Dino scored 55 goals and 51 assists for 106 points, three points ahead of would-be 1978 Calder Trophy winner and fellow Hall of Famer Mike Gartner. Ciccarelli kept a steady scoring pace with Minnesota, scoring 44, 52 and 41 from 1986-1988 making him attractive trade material the following season when he was moved to the Washington Capitals. He played nine seasons with the North Stars (1980-89), four with the Capitals (1988-1992), four with the Detroit Red Wings (1992-1996), two with the Tampa Bay Lightning (1996-1998) and two with the Florida Panthers (1997-1998). Ciccarelli was named to four NHL All-Star Games and holds the record for most goals (608) by an undrafted, yet draft-eligible player. He returned to the Stanley Cup Finals in 1995 with the Detroit Red Wings, only to fall to a four game sweep by the New Jersey Devils. Dino Ciccarelli finished his career with 608 regular season goals and 592 assists for 1,200 points in 1,232 games as well as adding 1,425 penalty minutes. He had 232 power play points and 73 game winning goals. In the playoffs, Dino played 141 games amassing 73 goals and 45 assists and 211 PIMs. Dino Ciccarelli was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2010.
