Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Sergei Bobrovsky
Goaltender Sergei Bobrobsky began his professional hockey career with Metallurg Novokuznetsk in his native Russia and joined the Philadelphia Flyers for the 2010-11 season.

Undrafted by an NHL club, Bobrobsky was expected to join the Flyers' AHL affiliate in 2010, but an injury to Michael Leighton opened up a spot on the roster and Bobrobsky's impressive play earned him the job of starting goalie on opening night. Bobrobsky would go on to have a successful rookie campaign in Philadelphia. He posted 28 wins, a 2.59 goals against average and a .915 save percentage.

On June 22, 2012 Bobrovsky was traded by the Flyers to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for a package of draft picks. With the NHL locked out to start the 2012-13 season Bobrovsky would join SKA St. Petersburg of the KHL to start the year. He would proceed to dominate the KHL, posting a record of 18 wins and only three losses to go along with a miniscule 1.94 goals against average.

When play resumed at the NHL level, Bobrovsky brought his stellar play to Columbus. In 38 games for the Blue Jackets he recorded 21 wins while posting an impressive 2.00 goals-against-average and a sparkling .932 save percentage. For his sensational play Bobrovsky was awarded the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goaltender, becoming the first Columbus player to capture the award in the process.

On the international stage, Bobrovsky helped Russia win a gold medal at the 2014 IIHF Championship and a silver medal at the 2015 IIHF World Championship.

Bobrovsky led the NHL with a 2.06 goals-against-average and .932 save percentage during the 2016-17 season. He also recorded a Blue Jackets-record 41 wins (including a 14-game winning streak) to go along with seven shutouts. For his efforts, Bobrovsky was awarded the Vezina Trophy for the second time in his career.
