Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Sergei Krivokrasov
Right-winger Sergei Krivokrasov possessed abundant skill which came through in spurts when he played for the Chicago Black Hawks. His talent was more readily apparent when he joined the expansion Nashville Predators in 1998-99 but he was not able to sustain his success.

Krivokrasov played two seasons with the Central Red Army where he was noticed by NHL scouts. The youngster acquitted himself well while representing Russia at the 1992 World Championships. Amid rumours that they would trade their pick as part of a package to land holdout Eric Lindros, the Hawks took Krivokrasov 12th overall at the 1992 Entry Draft.

The skilled Russian spent most of his first two North American seasons with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice where he showed a willingness to play aggressively as well as with flair. When the owners' lockout ended in 1995, Krivokrasov joined Chicago on a full-time basis. His offense never got going with the Hawks and he was left unprotected when the Nashville Predators began assembling their initial roster at the 1998 Expansion Draft.

Initially, Krivokrasov was rejuvenated in Nashville where he scored 25 goals in 1998-99 and was the team's representative at the NHL All-Star Game. His production dropped off the next season and he was sent to Calgary at the trade deadline. The Flames decided against protecting him in the 2000 Expansion Draft and he was chosen by the Minnesota Wild. Krivokrasov was a solid and sometimes spectacular player for his new club but continued to tantalize with flashes of brilliance.
