Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Pavel Skrbek
Born in Kladno of the former Czechoslovakia on August 8th, 1978 defenseman Pavel Skrbek was a 2nd round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1996. Skrbek came to North America in 1998 and began his professional career with the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League. That season he also got the call from the Penguins for a brief appearance in the NHL.

Skrbek suited up for four contests with the Penguins and was held scoreless.

The 1999-00 season was spent entirely in the minors honing his game and adjusting to the North American style of play. At the trade deadline of the that season the Penguins dealt their young defensive protégée to the Nashville Predators in exchange for Bob Boughner in an effort to beef up their blueline.

With the Predators Skrbek returned to the NHL during the 2000-01 campaign when he suited up for five more games. In 2001-02 Skrbek cracked the Predators roster out of training camp but he was felled by a concussion early in the season.
