Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jiri Sejba
Left-winger Jiri Sejba played 11 games for the Buffalo Sabres in 1990-91. He was a skilled goal scorer who was better suited to the larger ice surfaces of Europe where he excelled domestically and for his native Czechoslovakia.

Born in Pardubice, Czechoslovakia, Sejba was originally picked by Buffalo 182nd overall at the 1985 Entry Draft. By the time he arrived to try his luck in the NHL he was an experienced skater with Pardubice and a veteran of four World Championships, the 1987 Canada Cup and the 1988 Calgary Olympics.

Sejba struggled to get open and find his rhythm on the smaller NHL ice surface. He felt more comfortable in the AHL and scored 27 goals for the Rochester Americans in 1991-92. He eventually returned to Pardubice and Slovan Bratislava of the Slovak league before he retired in 1997.
