- USSR Gold (1): 1976
- WC Gold: 1971, 1973-1975
- Olympics Gold: 1976
- Played in the Summit Series 72, Superseries 75-76, 76-77, 78-79

- 246 points (168-78) in 515 RSL games
- top-10 in points in the Russian league among defensemen: 1T, 1T, 1T, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2T, 2, 3, 5

Ok.. this turned out to be extremely lucrative. He played from 1965-1979, and ONLY in 1979, his final season where he played about half the schedule, did he not score in the top-10 among defensemen. I think it's fair to say that his offensive contributions are incredibly underrated.

- 37 points (11-27) in 61 international games
- among Russian defenders in points internationally (top-3s only): 1T, 1T, 1, 1, 1
- these include 1st in points in '72 Summit Series, '76 Super Series
PM'ing next.
