Alexei Guryshev

Ht: 6 foot

DOB: March 14 1925, Moscow, Russia



Some stats on Guryshev:

-71 Goals in 92 Games With the National Team
-5 Time Leader in Goals in a Season in the Russian League
-4 Time Russian League All Star

Joe Pelletier:

Described as the "Phil Esposito of the early decades Russian hockey," Guryshev is the third highest scorer in Soviet hockey history with 379 career goals, trailing only Boris Mikhailov and Vyacheslav Starshinov
Though Guryshev wasn't a winger as I thought when I drafted him, the draft worked out so that I can provide my 4th line with his scoring ability. I really like this pick for my team. Being compared to Esposito is nothing to sneeze at.
