Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Markku Kyllonen
Left-winger Markku Kyllonen played nine games for the Winnipeg Jets in 1988-89. His 6'2" 200 lb. frame and excellent speed helped him become a decent scorer and effective battler in the corners.

Born in Joensuu, Finland, Kyllonen played six years with the Division 2 team JoKP before he was acquired by the elite Karpat Oulu club. After scoring 24 goals in his first year with Karpat in 1986-87 he was chosen 163rd overall by the Winnipeg Jets, a team with a traditional interest in European players.

Kyllonen registered two assists in nine games with the Jets in 1988-89 but spent most of the year with the Moncton Hawks of the AHL. He soon returned to his old JoKp team where he played three seasons before retiring in 1992. Kyllonen best year came in 1990-91 when he was one of the top scorers in the second division with 42 goals in 44 games.
