He played 8 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Hartford Whalers, Washington Capitals, New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs. He is currently a hockey analyst on the Rogers Sportsnet Cable television network in Canada.
Nick Kypreos's NHL career began as a member of the Washington Capitals. Though a very effective goal scorer in junior with the North Bay Centennials, Kypreos immediately became known as an enforcer at the NHL level, a role he maintained throughout his pro career. A native of Toronto, Ontario, he once scored 62 goals in the OHL. He was never drafted by an NHL team, but was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers on the eve of his second junior season. His best NHL season came in 1992-93 while a member of the Hartford Whalers when he scored a career best 17 goals while leading the league with 325 penalty minutes.
In 1994, Kypreos was a member of the Stanley Cup champion New York Rangers. He made his final NHL stop with the Toronto Maple Leafs. As a Leaf, his career ended as the result of a concussion sustained in a fight with the New York Rangers' Ryan VandenBussche in a pre-season game in September, 1997. After the injury, Kypreos suffered post concussion syndrome and was forced to retire. He would finish his NHL career with 46 goals, 44 assists, 90 points, and 1,210 penalty minutes in 442 regular season games.
