Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ivan Droppa
Defenceman Ivan Droppa played a few games for the Chicago Black Hawks in the 90s. He was a talented playmaker with good mobility who was better suited for the European Leagues and international competition.

Born in Liptovsky Mikulas, Czechoslovakia, Droppa excelled on VSC Kosice and played for his country at the 1991 and 1992 World Junior Championships. The talented youngster was chosen 37th overall by the Chicago Black Hawks in 1990 and notched 43 points as a rookie pro with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice in 1992-93. He continued to play well in Indy and was recalled a couple of times by the Hawks but was unable to gain a permanent NHL job.

Droppa competed for Slovakia at the 1996 World Cup and the 1997 World Championships before returning to Kosice in 1997-98. He also participated in the 1998 Nagano Olympics and the World Championships as few weeks later. Prior to the 1998-99 season, Droppa moved on to the German Bundeliga and began his second year with Dusseldorfer EG in 2001-02.
