Sergei Fedorov, who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, was known as arguably the most dynamic player in the NHL in the 1990s. The forward's world-class skills helped the Detroit Red Wings win the Stanley Cup three times (1997, 1998, 2002).
Fedorov retired from the NHL in 2009 as the all-time leading scorer among Russian players with 483 goals and 696 assists for 1,179 points in 1,248 games. He scored 400 goals and had 554 assists for 954 points in 908 games with the Red Wings. He had 176 points in 183 Stanley Cup Playoff games.
Here's what people around the game have to say about Fedorov:
Joe DiPenta accomplished the ultimate goal of his NHL career in 2007 when he won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Anaheim Ducks.
He has since taken on an even greater objective in the fight against cancer as executive director of the Atlantic Canada chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Canada.
"When I lifted that Cup above my head, those were the best six seconds of my life and the pinnacle of my career because it was the exclamation point for all the hard work and sacrifices that went into having that moment," DiPenta said. "I believe one day we'll have a similar feeling in discovering a cure for blood cancer.
"I'm already seeing it and the feeling is right up there with that feeling I had winning the Cup. It's a lofty goal, it's a dream and it's something I'm striving towards."
Parise collided with Predators forward James Neal near the right half-wall in the Wild offensive zone 1:05 into the game. Neal's left knee made contact with Parise's right knee. Neal was not assessed a penalty for the hit.
Parise got to his feet slowly and limped down the tunnel. He returned to the bench shortly after, but with 2:23 remaining in the period limped down the runway again and did not return.
Wild coach Mike Yeo said Parise will not play Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. An update on his condition will be provided Friday.
