Playing careerEdit

Nicknamed "The Polish Hammer", Krzysztof Oliwa was drafted 65th overall in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. An intimidating, physical player, he normally played the role of an enforcer and won the Stanley Cup with the Devils in 2000. Injuries prevented Oliwa from praticipating in the 2000 playoffs. However, Oliwa played enough regular season games to qualify to have his name inscribed on the Stanley Cup. He later played for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and the Calgary Flames. He signed with the New Jersey Devils as a free agent after the 2003–04 season. During the 2005–06 season, Oliwa was waived by the Devils and demoted to the minor league team in Albany. However, he chose not to report. He retired at the end of the 2005–06 season, taking the reins of the Polish National Hockey Program.

In 2007, Oliwa was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend with a hockey stick. Among the injuries to her were a broken nose, choke marks, and bruises on her arms, back, and ribs. Oliwa potentially faces three months to five years in jail.
