Petr Tenkrat pays dividends

By pbadmin

In the eighth round of the 1999 draft, Anaheim selected Petr Tenkrat from the Czech Republic. Selected 230th overall, the Ducks weren’t expecting him to pay dividends anytime soon. But on Wednesday night in only his tenth game in the NHL, he scored the overtime game-winning goal to give the Ducks a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers. The Ducks looked destined to lose, trailing 2-0 with only seven minutes left, but Selanne and Titov set the stage for the young rookie. Adding an assist on Titov’s goal, Tenkrat now has four goals and four assists for a total of 8 pts. This places Petr 29th amongst NHL rookies in points, with only 4 players above him playing less than 30 games. He is 19th in goals amongst rookies and only Tomi Kallio of Atlanta at 28 games has played less than 30. He is 9th in shot percentage amongst rookies, shooting more than anyone else above him on the list. Petr has points in six of his last eight games.

With the depth, or lack of depth, the Ducks have at right wing, Tenkrat might have just found a new home in Anaheim, and might have to miss the AHL All Star Game on January 15th. The Ducks will play Mario Lemieux and the Pittsburgh Penguins that night.

Petr Tenkrat in 24 games played for the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks had 9-8=17 points with 24 penalty minutes.

In 1999-2000 Petr played 53 games with HPK and Ilves-Tampere in Finland, scoring 35-14=49 points. His 35 goals ranked him third overall in the league, 15 more than anyone else on his team.
