Unfortunately, i have a flue and obviously i won't be going nowhere for a while. Have all time in the world (read: i'm so f***** bored), so i did this little trivia.

Let me see what you got my dearest nitbags

1) Who was the first Soviet to play in NHL and for which side he played?

2) Who was the first Soviet player that was drafted by NHL (name the team and year)

3) Who was the first Soviet player ever taken in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft?

Good luck :)

well, bravo doc!!!

all answers are correct :beer: :)

i was doing research on soviet players in nhl and found many fascinating facts. like:

- first Soviets had a real problem being accepted by their teammates. Few of them wanted even to talk to Soviets 'cause they were still concidered as "enemies".
- When Fetisov said in public he wants to go to America, the Soviet minister of defense demanded an apologie and gaved to Fetisov ultimatum: apologize or be sent to Siberia.
- Fetisov lost many of his friends, KGB followed him, his family was threatened... Fetisov was even ordered to put on his army uniform for the fourth time!
- In 1988, Larionov wrote an open letter to a popular Russian magazine criticising the situation of being caged and drilled for Soviet hockey praise nearly ELEVEN months a year!
- Yes, it is also a correct fact, Alexander Mogilny was a first defect! During the World Championships in Stockholm, he flew with the help of the Buffalo Sabres.
- Mogilny was the first Russian to be included on the NHL All-Star Team; the first European-born player to score 76 goals in an NHL season; and the first European to become captain of an NHL team.
...

and so on. i found many amazing stories, that you just cannot believe in today. nodays it all just seems like kind of science fiction

These posts come up every now and then, so I thought I would just add to this one...
There are two different games in which a goalie is credited a loss but did not allow a single goal past him. Name them and the circumstaces that resulted in the goalie getting the loss.

I had to edit this from the first time I posted this after researching it a little bit more

Haha, now I want to know. :d

I was going to guess it had something to do with the shootout as well...

It's not a trick question and the goalie was at the bench for a delayed penalty call or something and the puck went in his net or something?

Yeah, in both cases wierd shit happened. Here is a clue, one happened in 1925 and the other in 1989

If I had to guess, I would say that the goalie was pulled toward the end of a 0-0 game, and the other team scored an empty-netter.

Another possibility would be if a team was switching goalies during live play, an empty-netter was scored during the switch and neither goalie was credited as giving up the goal -- but somebody's gotta take the loss...

I've never heard of goalies switching during live play, so I doubt that one.

I have no idea to who it was. I will throw one out there and say Mike Vernon or Grant Fuhr.

On December 5th, 1925 Ottawa and Pittsburgh were tied at one goal apiece when Pittsburgh forward Herb Drury was penalized for throwing his stick.

The second case took place in an Edmonton-L.A. game. With the Oilers leading 6-5 Kelly Hrudey got hurt and Mario Gosselin TOOK OVER AS THE GOALIE OF RECORD. In the last few minutes of the game Gosselin was pulled with the score still 6-5 in favor of the Oilers. The Oilers then put one in the empty net to make the score 7-5. In the closing few seconds of the game LA scored a goal to make the score 7-6, and since Gosselin was the GOALIE OF RECORD at the time of the empty net goal he was charged with the loss even though he was not physically in the net for a single goale did not actually allow a goal.

See, I was close -- what with the empty-net goal talk. I knew the goalie-switch one was unlikely, but hey -- these are unlikely events as it is.

Thanks for the benefit of the doubt, it was just me being an idiot and attempting to watch the Wings game, type and think all at the same time. What I meant to say is that it was tied at zero.
Thanks for pointing that out and I have corrected it

The answer to this question that you claim is correct (Priakhin - Calgary) is wrong. He was the first soviet to play in the NHL with the blessing of their ice hockey federation, but Viktor Nechayev played 3 games for LA in 1982/83 and is the first soviet in the NHL.

Sorry to just jump in before all of Mr. Hockey's questions are answered, but here's mine:

Mr.Hockey93

I'm going to guess Heatley for shooting %.

That would surprise me if it's him. Granted he scores a lot, but he takes a crapload of shots too, doesn't he?

He's always got a high shooting %

Leafs rookie Jeremy Williams in 23 NHL games, has a shooting % of .250, .375 this season in 3 games :D

Well, all 3 answers were mentioned, in one form or another.

1) Alias nailed it with Tanguay, at a career percentage of 19.44 %. I'm guessing this has been a topic of convo on MTL broadcasts this season?

2) Chgor pretty much got this one, which I guess is open for debate. Shanny has 235, good for 6th all time, but he's technically not active. Sakic is 11th all time with 205 and leads active players. Selanne is 2nd with 203 (very close alias, lol)

3) Chgor mentioned this one. Sergei Federov leads all active players with 36 career SHG.

Isn't it Andreychuk or something, banging in garbage PP goals from the top of the crease before Holmstrom made an artform out of it? I was gonna say Hull, but too easy, and not at all 'interesting' per se, so it can't be him.

No, I knew that Tanguay had a very good SH% back when he was with COL. He hardly shoots at all and scores a lot when he does. And Selanne will have more PP goals than Sakic by season's end....hell maybe by the end of December.

Nah. Like you said, Fukufuji was easy, since it was a "big deal" at the time. Grabovski I knew because I've remembered his hometown since I first heard/saw it somewhere - Potsdam, Germany. There's also a Potsdam, NY (where Clarkson University is), so it stuck in my head.

Those are all right which leaves only a couple. Thanks for nailing the Blackhawks question nice and early...I was hoping that one would be tricky. nyrblue2 has a good question about the Canadiens...my little book sort of contradicts itself on that one. I have them playing as the MAROONS. Perhaps an insightful fan or somebody could look it up.

Nice work guys

That leaves Detroit and Toronto

Technically, the Ducks were the "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim", not the Anaheim Mighty Ducks...:p

Also, good call on the Devils w/ the KC Scouts. Both that and the Colorado Rockies are correct.

Honestly, I probably wouldn't have known that under normal circumstances, except I happened to look up the history of the name a month or two ago on a whim.

So here's a question. What are the Blackhawks most directly named for?

What happened to the following teams? I don't know so I'm trying to find out haha...

Did any relocate to current NHL teams? (I believe the California Golden Seals did but am not sure :S)

Kansas City became the Colorado Rockies and then the Devils.

California, Oakland and Cleveland are all the same franchise, but I'm not sure in what order...

Not sure about Kenora (never heard of them actually)...

Montreal Canadiens - Trick question?



Most of them have been answered, but I'm pretty sure the Canadiens were always the Canadiens. They were founded in 1909 from scratch. There were multiple teams from Montreal....the AAA's (one of the founding teams and won the 1st 2 cups), they then became the Wanderers, who then became the Maroons, the Shamrocks (who merged into the Montreal Crystals), the Victorias (not to be confused with the Winnipeg Victoria). The Canadiens were the "french" Montreal team and competed against the "english" Montreal teams (Wanderers/Maroons) Those "english teams" folded in the 30's and the Canadiens were the sole team in Montreal since.
