The Spokane Canaries also are pleased to select a right winger who was a mainstay on Soviet national teams from winning Canada Cup '81 to the World Championships in 1993, was simply exceptional from 1987 to 1992:

Andrei Khomutov

"... dazzling speed, a pleasure to watch him skate..."

on the winning side at the 1981 Canada Cup;
gold at the IIHF World Championships in 1981, 1982, 1983, 1986, 1989, and 1993;
and gold in the 1984, 1988, and 1992 Winter Olympics

Some Great International Moments:

1. scored a goal and an assist in the 5-3 Soviet win over the NHL All-stars in the last game of Rendez Vous '87, finishing second to Gretzky in points

2. scored 4 goals and 7 points in Canada Cup '87 to finish fourth in goal scoring

3. scored 7 goals and 14 points in 1992 Olympics to lead the Unified Team to the gold medal, tying the tourney lead in scoring with Selanne

1990 Soviet League MVP
1990 IIHF All-star
1990 IIHF Best Scorer (Goals, WOG)
