Professional Hockey Player. For twelve seasons (1949 to 1961), he played at the left-wing and center positions in the National Hockey League with the Detroit Red Wings, Chicago Black Hawks and Montreal Canadiens. He initiated his association with the sport with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior Team in 1947 and after a 51 goal season (1949 to 1950), he marked his debut in the NHL during the 1949-1950 season. Detroit went onto win the Stanley Cup in 1950. During his years with the Red Wings, Skov aided a bevy of superstar players including Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay as Detroit captured three Stanley Cup Titles (1952, 1954 and 1955). Individually, Skov achieved All-Star status in 1954. Skov was one of the most durable players during his era, as he played in every regular season game from 1951 until 1956. In 650 regular season NHL games, he compiled 106 points with 136 assists. (bio by: C.S.)
