Recchi, Mark

Mark is a hockey player (b 1 Feb 1968, Kamloops). He played his junior hockey with the Kamloops Blazers in the WHL. Underrated because of his small size, he was drafted only in the fourth round but surprised everyone by proving to be a prolific NHL scorer. The Penguins won the 1991 Stanley Cup thanks in large part to his play, but they traded him to Philadelphia midway through the next season. With the Flyers in 1992-93, he scored a career-high 53 goals and 123 points, a points record that stands alongside his 73 assists (1990-91) as the highest totals in the 20th century by any player born and raised in BC. In 1995 he was traded to Montreal and was a member of Team Canada at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano. The Flyers reacquired him in 1998-99 and he led the team in scoring for the next two seasons.
