Sergei Makarov spent a quick seven seasons in the NHL, four seasons in Calgary, two in San Jose and a few games in Dallas to round out his career in North America. Makarov was one of the first Russians to play in the league, and specifically for Calgary, after Priakin signed with the Flames. That year he won the Calder Memorial Trophy. While his NHL career didn’t last long, his overall playing career spanned two decades, dating back to 1976. The right winger won two Olympic gold medals and an impressive number of World championships (eight to be exact). He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016.
