Evgeny Davydov

Why did Davydov play only two full seasons in the NHL? He scored 28 goals in 1992-93 and two years later he was out of the league.

He got sent down to the minors. After those seasons, he petered out and wasn't really much of a player.

1992-1993 was an anomaly year in the NHL. The stats for players seemed to inflate for that particular year, probably due to the fact that there were new expansion teams that teams could feast on. Selanne had 76 goals, 132 points that year and he never hit that point again. Davydov's 28 goals, 49 points didn't really mean as much as it would mean today.

Side question: Was Davydov the first guy that came off the bench during the punch up in Piestany?

^ Yeah he was. Was a pretty good player too, but enigmatic. Had a nice shot. Potted 30 goals one season in the SEL.

Yeah, I think he said his coach told him to do it.

I remember when his team (Soviet Wings?) came to Winnipeg in 1990. I was at a friend's sports clothing store when Davydov came in with some of his teammates. He sold me a Fetisov jersey for $40. I think it was just a practice jersey. Tall and lanky guy. On the ice he looked like he had potential to be a solid player for years.
