Bio

Igor Larionov Bio

Larionov, nicknamed "The Professor" because of his cerebral style of play (and the fact that he wore glasses off the ice), was recognized as one of the best players in the world well before he made his NHL debut with the Vancouver Canucks in 1989, when he was almost 29 years old. Despite the late start, Larionov played 14 seasons in the NHL and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.

He starred in the Soviet Union for three seasons with his hometown team, Khimik Voskresensk, and eight seasons with CSKA Moscow, where he centered the famed "KLM Line" with Vladimir Krutov and Sergei Makarov on his wings. Together with defensemen Viacheslav Fetisov and Alexei Kasatonov, they formed the five-player "Green Unit" (named for the color of their practice jerseys) that dominated in the Soviet League and internationally with the national team.
