Weight: 175
Shoots: Left
Born: Dec 25, 1951

Drafted: CHI / 1971 NHL Amateur Draft
Round: 2nd (26th overall)
Dave Kryskow was a left winger with solid all round skills who played with four different teams in the 1960s. He shifted from being a goal scorer in junior to working the boards and playing sound defensive hockey in the NHL.

The native of Edmonton, Alberta, starred with the hometown Oil Kings of the WCJHL for two years. After scoring 42 goals in 1970-71 he was selected 26th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the NHL amateur draft. He spent his first pro season gaining valuable experience with the Dallas Black Hawks of the CHL. In 1972-73 he was a top scorer for Dallas and received an 11-game look in Chicago.

Kryskow was elevated to the NHL on a full time basis in 1973-74. He scored just 19 points but was a solid checker in coach Billy Reay's disciplined system. Chicago lost Kryskow to the expansion Washington Capitals. The young forward struggled with the adjustment from one of the league's well-organized clubs to a young team in disarray most nights.

After playing 51 games with Washington, Kryskow was sent to Detroit for veteran forward Jack Lynch. Another trade sent him to Atlanta and he registered a career-best 40 points in the Deep South in 1975-76. Kryskow closed out his pro career in the World Hockey Association with the Calgary Cowboys and Winnipeg Jets where he was allowed to play a more offensive role before retiring in 1978.
