It may seem like a long time ago, but Ziggy Palffy was a point per game player in the National Hockey League. Palffy was a natural sniper and may go down as one of the best Slovakian players of all time. Shoulder problems reduced his effectiveness, and he returned back to his native country to play there. Palffy is an unlikely candidate for the Hall of Fame, but he should not be forgotten as quickly as he has been.
