Although technically you're right, first year with NHL pros was 98. But I think pros were allowed before that, it's just that the NHL didn't release their players for the Olympic tournament during the season.
1984 was the first time "Pros" were allowed in the Olympics. I don't know when NHL players were allowed in.
