The 20 greatest Russian hockey players to star in the NHL

[post_page_title]Pavel Bure 1992-2003[/post_page_title]
Pavel Bure was nicknamed the Russian Rocket for a reason. The right winger was known for his speed and his goal scoring abilities. During his 12 seasons in the NHL, Bure scored 437 goals with 342 assists. In 1993-94 and 1994-95, Bure scored 60 goals, becoming the first Russian player to score 60+ goals in more than a one season (Alexander Mogilny holds the record of goals scored in a single season for a Russian, you’ll find him later on this list). He retired fairly early due to a chronic knee injury and was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 2012.
