Bio

Viacheslav Fetisov Bio

Fetisov was already one of the most decorated players in hockey history before coming to the NHL with the New Jersey Devils in 1989.

The Moscow native was regarded by many as the best defenseman in the world for much of the 1980s. He helped the Soviet Union win the gold medal at the 1984 Sarajevo Olympics and again at the 1988 Calgary Olympics, finish first seven times at the IIHF World Championship, and win the Canada Cup in 1981. Fetisov was also named player of the year two times in the Soviet Union while playing for the Central Red Army from 1976-77 through 1988-89, winning the Soviet Championship League title in all 13 seasons.
