Queen's University selects defenseman Sergei Starikov, the 10-year veteran of the Soviet national team, playing in 186 international contests starting in 1979 when he was Vasiliev's partner on the top pairing in the USSR's victorious best-of-three series win over the NHL's stars in the Challenge Cup. That same year he scored 4 points in 4 games against NHL clubs as a member of the Soviet Wings club in the Super Series. He scored 7 points in 7 games in the 1980 Olympics. He scored 3 assists in the 1984 Canada Cup. He scored 4 goals in the 1987 world championships. He also scored points in the 1984 and 1988 Olympics, 1983 and 1989 Super Series, and in Rendez'Vous '87. All this despite being described as a stay-at-home defender. He is 10th in all-time games for a defenseman on the national team. In addition to his play against the world's best, he was a regular on the blueline in 9 Soviet league championships for the vaulted Red Army team.
