Anyone miss Andrei Lomakin?

Just playing some NHL 94 here on the Sega and I was wondering if anyone else missed Lomakin.... perhaps it is just me

He is of about a dozen ex-Flyers to have passed away.

Cancer. I am not sure if it was publicly confirmed but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a form of lung cancer. Passed away about four years ago.

He was part of the gold medal winning team at the Calgary Olympics and was drafted when he was in his upper 20s. He was a better international player than NHL player. He came to the Flyers right around the time of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Russ Farwell was the GM at the time and Holmgren the coach. He never really met expectations but that's not to say he was a disappointment either. The team was in a state of flux those years. At one point, he was on the top line with Lindros and Kevin Dineen. He also replaced Mike Ricci for a time on a line with Tocchet and Pelle Eklund. Eventually, he was lost to the Panthers in the expansion draft.

Good two-way player but he didn't score as much as hoped at the NHL level.

Growing up in Sweden in the 80's, we barely knew NHL existed, but we sure knew that those Russians could play. Lomakin was just below the KML line in stature along with guys like Chomutov, Bykov and Kamenski (who was a bit younger though).

I remember liking Lomakin ..he was shifty and yes a pretty good two-way player. He was much more memorable than Butsayev, Dopita (apart from his game in Edmonton) Jiri Latal and the likes of Denis Tolpeko. Yushkevich is still one of my favorite former Eastern bloc/Russian players that played for the Flyers...I think I would have liked Tertyshny a lot if it wasn't for that unfortunate accident. Saw a lot of potential. Players like Zelepukin, Zubrus and Zhamnov had decent runs with the Flyers albeit short.

These are ex-Flyers who have passed away. The list may be incomplete.

Barry Ashbee, Bruce Gamble, Pelle Lindbergh, Wayne Hillman, Michel Larocque, Ralph MacSweyn, Yannick Dupre, Bill Flett, Dmitri Tertyshny, Rick Lapointe, Andrei Lomakin, Miroslav Dvorak, Peter Zezel, Reggie Fleming and Wayne Stephenson.

Lomakin was also the player whom Gary Suter slashed high (head/face) in an international game, which led to Suter's suspension within the NHL.

Saddest one. I can't remember, I don't know if it was a Flyers player or not, but who died while saving his son from a combine?

Barry Tabobondung. A draft pick. There is an otherwise amusing story related to him. When he was drafted, he was so excited he climbed over a bunch of chairs to get to the podium. However, his foot got stuck in the back of a seat and workers had to remove a section to free him.

I was a HUGE Andrei Lomakin fan, and I don't know why. Same with Dominic Roussel.
