Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Petr Sykora
Petr Sykora was born December 21, 1978 in Pardubice, Czech Republic. The second round, 76th overall selection of the Detroit Red Wings in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, Sykora honed his skills with HC Pardubice of the Czech Junior and Elite Leagues before making his North American debut in 1998-99.

Although he was drafted by Detroit, Sykora had his rights traded to the Nashville Predators in the summer of 1998 and spent the majority of his first season in North America with the IHL's Milwaukee Admirals. Sykora's strong play in Milwaukee made enough of an impression on the Nashville brass to warrant two games with the parent club during the year. Sykora returned to Milwaukee in 99-2000 and went on to play a handful of games with the club before opting to return to the Czech Republic and his old club team, with whom he continues to play with.

In the summer of 2002, Sykora had his rights traded to the Washington Capitals.
