Learn More about Igor Larionov:

Igor Larionov is a Russian hockey center that played 29 years of professional hockey in both the Soviet League and the NHL.  He was drafted into the NHL by the Vancouver Canucks in 1985 but he wasn’t allowed to join the Canucks until the 1989-1990 season when he was released by Sovietintersports who would draw a portion of Russian-NHL players’ salaries.  Larionov played for 3 years in Vancouver and he steadily improved his North American game.  By his third year, he was centering the Canucks top line with wingers Greg Adams and Pavel Bure.

Larionov left North America to play in Switzerland for one year before returning to NHL to play for the San Jose Sharks where he served as alternate captain for the 1994-95 season.  The following season, Igor Larionov was traded to the Detroit Red Wings where coach Scotty Bowman placed him on the highly effective “Russian Five” line.  The Russian Five consisted of Viacheslav Fetisov, Sergei Fedorov, Vyacheslav Kozlov and Vladimir Konstantinov.  They were an integral part of the Detroit’s back to back Stanley Cup Championships in 1997 and 1998.  Larionov was traded to the Florida Panthers where he was reunited with Pavel Bure, however, he was traded back to the Red Wings before the season was over.  It was with Detroit that he won his third Stanley Cup after scoring the game-winning goal in triple overtime of game 3.  He played his final NHL season with the New Jersey Devils.

Igor Larionov represented Team Russia at several events.  He is one of only four players in the world to have won gold at the Olympics, World Championships, Stanley Cup, Canada/World Cup and the World Junior Championships.

Igor Larionov was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.
