Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Iiro Jarvi
Right-winger Iiro Jarvi played two seasons with the Quebec Nordiques during the late 1980s. Although his NHL tenure was short, he enjoyed much success in the Finnish league and on the international stage.

Born in the Finnish capital of Helsinki, Jarvi played his first five pro seasons with the HFK club in his hometown. He was picked to represent his country at the 1984 and 1985 World Junior Championships and won a silver medal at the former. The slick forward became a constant on the national team, playing in the 1987 World Championships, the 1987 Canada Cup, the 1988 Calgary Olympics, the 1989 World Championships and the 1991 Canada Cup. The highlight of this period for Jarvi was scoring seven points in eight games and helping his team win the silver medal in Calgary during the Olympic Winter Games of 1088.

Jarvi enjoyed a fine rookie season with Quebec by scoring 41 points in 1988-89. He played half the next year but soon became discouraged by the poor results of the team. He signed with Klangenfuter of the German league for one year before returning to HFK Helsinki before retiring in 1996.
