Russain Coach Inducted Into Ice Hockey Hall Of Fame

Viacheslav Fetisov, Russia's Olympic ice hockey coach and one of the country's most titled players, was officially inducted into the ice hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Monday. From the 226 players inducted into the Hall of Fame, Fetisov is only the second Russian, following in the footsteps of his famous CSKA and Russian select team colleague in the seventies and eighties, Vladislav Tretyak. Fetisov's fellow inductees are Jari Kurri, Dale Hawerchuk, Mike Gartner. They have all recently finished their long and highly successful careers. Having replaced Boris Mikhailov as CSKA and Soviet Union captain, Fetisov went on to lead his club to 12 national championship victories and his country to 7 world titles, as well as two Olympic golds (1984 and 1988). He made the move Stateside in 1989 and went onto claim two Stanley Cups in 1997 and 1999 with the Detroit Red Wings. He is currently assistant coach with the New Jersey Devils. "I have achieved everything I dreamed of in my childhood," Fetisov told journalists, while admitting that even in his wildest dreams he never thought he'd be elected to the Hall of Fame.
