Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Roman Oksiuta
Gigantic right-winger Roman Oksiuta played 153 NHL games for four different clubs in the 90s. He possessed a decent scoring touch for someone 6'3" and 230lbs. After a fine domestic career in the USSR, his NHL tenure was more solid than outstanding.

The native of Murmansk, USSR spent six seasons with Khimik Voskresensk. He gained his first international experience while helping the Soviet Union win the gold medal at the 1989 World Junior Championships and silver at the 1990 tourney. He was taken 202nd overall by the New York Rangers at the 1989 Entry Draft and came to North America when Khimik toured the NHL in 1990 and 1991. He also competed for his club team at the 1992 Izvestia tournament and was the top scorer.

In December, 1992 he was part of the package sent by New York to the Edmonton Oilers for veteran defenceman Kevin Lowe. Oksiuta played a bit with Edmonton but was a stalwart on the AHL's Cape Breton Oilers and helped the team win the Calder Cup in 1993.

The youngster was traded to the Vancouver Canucks for Jiri Slegr in April, 1995 and was a solid contributor when the team reached the second round of the playoffs. He was off to a good start the next year with 16 goals in 56 games before he was traded to Anaheim for Mike Sillinger. Oksiuta played briefly for the Mighty Ducks then the Pittsburgh Penguins then spent an injury-plagued year with the IHL's Fort Wayne Komets in 1997-98.
