Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dmitri Filimonov
Defenceman Dimitri Filimonov played half a season with the Ottawa Senators in 1993-94. He was fairly mobile for a 6'4" 220 pounder and became adept at taking the bosy in the minors.

Born in Perm, USSR, Filimonov came up through the Moscow Dynamo system. He represented the USSR at the European Junior Championships in 1989 and was placed on the tournament all-star team. In 1990-91 he caught the attention of NHL scouts when he played well during the team's Super Series tour. Filimonov was chosen 49th overall by the Winnipeg Jets at the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He also played a regular shift on the USSR squad at that year's Canada Cup.

Filimonov's NHL rights were traded by the Jets to the Ottawa Senators in March, 1993. He scored five points in 30 games for Ottawa and was a fine addition to the AHL's P.E.I. Senators over the next two years. In 1995-96 Filimonov battled injuries and only played 10 games in the IHL wit the Indianapolis Ice. He returned to Europe the following season to compete for the Finnish club Kalpa Kuipio then spent a year back in Russia with Molot-Prikamje Perm.
