Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Alexander Andrievski
Andrijevski struck out from Moscow in the hopes of making it big in the NHL after being drafted an unpromising 220th overall by Chicago in 1991. He had played in Moscow, but the lure of a North American contract drew him to the Windy City.

Unfortunately, he played just one game with Chicago, spending the next three years in the minors and showing little offensive ability. In the post-Perestroika age, though, he had other options, and rather than return home he struck out for Finland, and later Italy and Germany, playing European league hockey while enjoying a successful international career with his new country Belarus.

Andrievski played at the 1995 World Championships, helping Belarus win the tournament and gain promotion to B pool the following year where he won a bronze medal with the team. The next year he won a gold that earned the country a promotion to A pool, and in 1998 the Belarussians finished eighth in their first time in A pool competition at the WC. Additionally, Belarus was a pleasant surprise at Nagano, finishing fifth and establishing itself as a solid A pool nation.

Andrievski continues to play, and though the NHL doesn't beckon, his career is in fine shape, anyway.
