Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Tony Currie
Tony Currie was selected by the St. Louis Blues in the third round of the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft, 63rd overall, from the WHL's Portland Winter Hawks.

He spent three years in Edmonton and showed marked improvement each season. In his first year with the Oil Kings, Currie admitted he was nervous and just looking to fit in with the club. In 22 games, he had just a single assist while seeing limited ice time. The following year, he scored 28 goals and 45 points in 39 games. That set up a great final year in which he had 41 goals and 81 points in 71 games. As a 19-year-old veteran, Currie joined the Portland Winter Hawks, and lit the lamp on 73 occasions in just 72 games, finishing with 125 points.

The 1977-78 season was Currie's first as a pro. He appeared in 22 games for the Blues, scoring four goals and nine points. In 1980-81, Currie had his best year in the NHL, scoring 23 goals and 55 points for the Blues in 61 games.

Midway through the 1981-82 season, Currie was sent to the Vancouver Canucks, where he played for just 20 games before being sent to the Hartford Whalers, where his NHL career ended in 1984-85. He continued to ply his trade in the minors and then in Europe for another five years before retiring from Varese of the Italian League in 1990.

In 290 NHL games, Currie had 92 goals and 119 assists for 211 points.
