Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jozef Cierny
The Buffalo Sabres drafted Czech left winger Jozef Cierny in the 2nd round of the 1992 NHL Entry Draft. Cierny, born in the town of Zvolen on May 13th 1974 wouldn't remain Buffalo property for long, however, despite scoring 27 goals for the farm club. The Sabres, in search of a veteran scorer, traded Cierny to the Edmonton Oilers for Craig Simpson.

During his first season in the Oilers organization, 1993-94, Cierny upped his minor league goal total to 30, but also made his NHL debut. Cierny suited up for a single game with the Edmonton, but was unable to get on the scoresheet. It would prove to be his only NHL appearance.

By 1995, Cierny joined the International Hockey League where he spent two seasons before heading to Europe to continue his career. Cierny played three years in Germany before returning home to play in Slovakia for the 2000-01 campaign.
