Jarkko Varvio (April 28, 1972 in Tampere, Finland) is a retired Finnish ice hockey player who had a very brief stint in the NHL. Varvio was drafted by Minnesota North Stars in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft.[1] He was the top scorer at the 1992 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships in Czechoslovakia. However, his only two active seasons in the NHL were in 1993-94 and 1994-95 with the Dallas Stars. In 13 career games, he notched three goals, four assists (for seven points), and had four penalty minutes.[2] Jarkko scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game,[3] which was also the first game Dallas Stars played as the Stars since leaving Minnesota.[4] After his time with the Stars Varvio bounced around Europe playing in various leagues.[1] Varvio last played for Ravensburg EV in Germany's GerObL before retiring in 2005.
