Legends of Hockey - Induction Showcase - Valeri Kharlamov (822 words)
Through fourteen seasons with the Soviet Red Army squad, Valeri collected 293 goals and 214 assists for 507 points in 436 regular season games and was the integral component on eleven league championships (1968, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980 and 1981).
Through much of his outstanding career, Kharlamov was paired with Vladimir Petrov at centre and Boris Mikhailov at right wing to form the Army Line, one of the most dominating trios in hockey history.
Ilya Kovalchuk, the first Russian ever selected first overall when he was the initial pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, was not born until 1983, but offers his homage to Kharlamov's legacy by wearing the number 17 for the Atlanta Thrashers, and insisted on wearing Kharlamov's 17 in the 2002 Olympic tournament as well.
