Defenceman Serge Starikov played 16 games for the New Jersey Devils in 1989-90. By the time he reached North America he was an experienced 31-year-old domestic and international star in the USSR.

Born in Chelyabinski, USSR, Starikov began his club career with the local Traktor squad. He played for the USSR at the 1977 and 1978 World Junior Championships. He went on to play several years with the Central Red Army and won a host of domestic titles and toured North America in six Super Series. The crafty blueliner also played at the 1979 Challenge Cup, five World Championships, three Olympics and the 1984 Canada Cup.

Starikov was drafted 152nd overall by the Devils in 1989 but only played 16 games in the NHL the next season. He settled into a decent career in the minors before retiring in 1993.
