Jari Pekka Kurri is a retired Finnish professional ice hockey right winger and a five-time Stanley Cup champion. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2017 Kurri was named one of the'100 Greatest NHL Players' in history, he is the general owner of Jokerit. He began his pro career with Jokerit in the Finnish SM-liiga. After an eleven-point rookie season for Jokerit in 1977–78, Kurri scored 30 and 39 points the next two years, playing all 33 games in each season. After his third season, Kurri was signed by the Edmonton Oilers; when Kurri joined the Oilers, he was soon paired with Wayne Gretzky. Kurri and Gretzky became one of the most prolific scoring duos to play in the NHL. Despite not always playing on the same line, Gretzky assisted on 364 of Kurri's 601 career goals, while Kurri had an assist on 196 Gretzky goals. During his career in Edmonton, he was nicknamed the "Finnish Flash". Kurri was "by far our most complete player", according to Oilers' director of personnel Barry Fraser.

Although Kurri never won the Selke Trophy, he was regarded as one of the best defensive forwards in the NHL. Alongside Kurri, Esa Tikkanen and Gretzky, Edmonton had future hall-of-famers Paul Coffey, Grant Fuhr, Glenn Anderson and Mark Messier; the team won four Stanley Cups during Gretzky's tenure. In 1988, Gretzky was traded, along with team enforcer Marty McSorley, to the Los Angeles Kings. Following Gretzky's trade, Kurri recorded 195 points in 154 games, leading the Oilers to their fifth and last Stanley Cup in 1990. Kurri won all with Edmonton. In 1984 -- 85 he scored 50 goals in his first 50 games. A year he led the league in goals with 68. In 1984–85 Kurri set a record for goals by a right winger when he scored 71, broken by Brett Hull when he scored 72 goals in 1989–90. Kurri scored the Stanley Cup winning goal in game seven against the Philadelphia Flyers in 1987. Kurri's 19 goals in the 1985 post-season tied an NHL record set by the Flyers' Reggie Leach in the 1976 playoffs; those 19 goals included a still-standing record in a playoff season.

Kurri scored three of the hat tricks against the Blackhawks in the conference finals a feat that no player has equaled. He scored five goals in a single game, on November 19, 1983; the achievement was not repeated by Finnish player until November 24, 2018 when Patrik Laine had a five-goal-game. Kurri registered three goals and two assists in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Boston, May 18, 1990, setting a record for scoring in a single Finals game in the modern era, on his 30th birthday. Kurri had set up Petr Klíma`s goal in triple overtime in Game 1. Kurri's contract with the Oilers expired in 1990 but his NHL rights were still owned by the Oilers. Instead of accepting a new contract from the Oilers, Kurri opted for a season in Italy and played for Devils Milano of the Italian Serie A. Kurri had 27 goals and 48 assists in 30 games while he played in the Italian league. After a season in Italy, Kurri's rights were traded to the Philadelphia Flyers and to the Los Angeles Kings on the same day.

For the first time since the 1988 trade, Kurri was reunited with Wayne Gretzky. The pair had a successful campaign in 1993 leading the Los Angeles Kings to the Stanley Cup Finals where they faced off against the Montreal Canadiens. Kurri managed to put together 17 points in 24 games during the run, in which the Kings fell short and lost the series in 5 games. Jari followed the run up with a few more solid seasons as a Los Angeles King, scoring 146 points in 176 games. Kurri's best season for the Kings was during the successful 1992–93 season when Kurri posted 27 goals and 60 assists in 82 games. During the 1994–95 NHL lockout Jari Kurri represented Jokerit, the team for which he played before his NHL career. Kurri played alongside Teemu Selänne, the 1993 winner of the Calder Memorial Trophy who had established himself as one of the top stars in Finland during early success in the NHL. Kurri had one memorable moment during his visit to SM-liiga when Jokerit faced their local rivals HIFK. Kurri played against his former Oilers-linemate Esa Tikkanen and another Finnish NHL-player, Christian Ruuttu.

Kurri, Selänne and Jokerit captain Waltteri Immonen led Jokerit to 4–2 victory over Russian HC Lada Togliatti in 1994 European Cup Finals. After the lockout Kurri returned to Los Angeles, but was traded to New York Rangers in 1996 for their playoff run. Kurri played the remainder of the 1995–96 NHL season with the Rangers and posted one goal and four assists in 14 games. While he may not have put up the points the Rangers expected him to at the end of the regular season, Kurri proved some of his value by notching 8 points in 11 playoff games with the Rangers. After his short period with the Rangers, Kurri signed with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim. Kurri intended to play alongside Teemu Selänne and Paul Kariya, but was reduced to a smaller role on the second and third lines, despite a newfound confidence from rigorous summer training; the Mighty Ducks made it to the playoffs and defeated the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round but were swept by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round. After his single season with the Mighty Ducks, Kurri was signed by the Colo

Joseph (Petrovykh)

Metropolitan Joseph was a metropolitan of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was a leader of the anti-Soviet resistance organizer of the Catacomb Church, he was born in Novgorod Governorate. Metropolitan of Leningrad, after the publication in 1927 the "Declaration" by Metropolitan Sergius he led the Josephites movement, he was against the recognition of the Soviet government by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1927–37. Before he was killed by the "Soviets", Metropolitan Joseph wrote: "Do not judge me so and understand the following: I am not at all a schismatic, I call not to a schism, but to the purification of the Church from those who sow real schism and provoke it. To indicate to another his errors and wrongs is not schism but, to speak it is putting an unbridled horse back into harness; the refusal to accept sound reproaches and directives is in reality a schism and a trampling on the truth. In the construction of ecclesiastical life the participants are not only those at the head, but the whole body of the Church, a schismatic is he who assumes to himself rights which exceed his authority and in the name of the Church presumes to say that, not shared by his colleagues.

Metropolitan Sergius has shown himself to be such a schismatic, for he has far exceeded his authority and has rejected and scorned the voice of many hierarchs, in whose midst the pure truth has been preserved". He was murdered by the Soviet government in 1937 in Kazakhstan. In 1981, Metropolitan Joseph was glorified as a New Martyr by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia, but not by the Russian Orthodox Church. Metropolitan Joseph profile, theorthodox.org.
