Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Evgeny Davydov
Born in Chelyabinsk in the former Soviet Union on May 27th, 1967 left-winger Evgeny Davydov spent eight seasons playing in Russia before he crossed the ocean to peruse an NHL career. Davydov was a late draft pick of the Winnipeg Jets with whom he made his debut late in the 1991-92 season.

After scoring seven points in 12 games that year he responded well the next season, lighting the lamp 28 times for the Jets and scoring 49 points. Despite his impressive goal total for Winnipeg, Davydov was packing his bags that summer as a result of a trade. The Jets sent the winger to the expansion Florida Panthers in exchange for a draft pick.

Davydov was expected to provide offense for the first year club but only managed two goals through 21 games with the Panthers before a mid-season trade sent him to Ottawa.

With the Ottawa Senators Davydov was still unable to rediscover his scoring touch potting just five goals in the 40 games he spent with them that year. Davydov played just three games with the Senators, and despite putting up three points in that time he spent the rest of the year in the minors.

In 1995-96 Davydov played in France, though just briefly, then took his skills to Sweden in 1996 where he led the Swedish Elite League in goal scoring with 30 goals in 46 games. His production dipped the following year and he left the club and moved on to Zug of the Swiss League then retired at season's end.
