41. Mike Krushelnyski

Mike Krushelnyski’s career began in Boston for three seasons, and he was traded straight-up for Ken Linseman to the defending Stanley Cup Champion in the summer of 1984.  It was a good trade for both sides, and Krushelnyski was an All-Star in 1985 and put forth a career-high 88 Points.  He would also finish the season third in Plus/Minus (+60) and sixth in Shooting Percentage (22.5).  He played in Edmonton for four seasons, helping the Oilers win the Stanley Cup in three of them, and he would score 226 Points in 290 Games for the team.

At the personal request of Wayne Gretzky, Krushelnyski was part of the blockbuster trade that saw him move to Los Angeles and join the Kings in 1988.
