Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Anatoli Fedotov
An experienced player in the USSR, Anatoli Fedotov's NHL career lasted all of four games in the early 1990s. He was a solid positional defenceman but, when allowed to move forward with the puck, could be helpful on offense.

Born in Saratov, USSR, began playing with second division Kristall Saratov in 1984-85. That year he helped the Soviet Union win the bronze medal at the World Junior Championships. In 1985-86 he joined the prestigious Moscow Dynamo club and helped the USSR strike gold at the World Juniors.

Fedotov was a fixture on the Dynamo blueline until 1992 and was a member of the Team USSR at the 1987 Canada Cup. Fedotov joined his club team for its North American tour in 1989-90 but was forced to sit out the next season. In July 1991 he signed a minor pro contract with the Winnipeg Jets. Fedotov played one game for the Jets in 1992-93 but spent most of the year with the AHL"s Moncton Hawks. After scoring 47 points for Moncton, he entered the Draft and was chosen 238th overall by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim.

Apart from three games in Anaheim, Fedotov played most of the next two seasons in the IHL with the San Diego Gulls. He returned to his old Kristall club in 1995-96 before joining Finland's Tappara Tampere the next season. In 1997 he played for Russia at the World Championships but the team finished a disappointing fourth. Fedotov played the 1997-98 season with HV-71 Jonkoping of Sweden before retiring.
