Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andrei Lomakin
Right-winger Andrei Lomakin played parts of four seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers and Florida Panthers in the 90s. Prior to this he was an established domestic and international star in the USSR.

Born in Voskresensk, USSR, Lomakin played five years with Khimik and helped his country win the gold medal at the 1984 World Junior Championships. Beginning in 1986-87, the talented forward spent many years with Moscow Dynamo and contributed to three straight championships between 1990-92.

Internationally, Lomakin impressed as a 23 year old at the 1987 Canada Cup and helped the USSR win the gold medal at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. He also became familiar to North American fans during Dynamo's tours of the NHL in 1989, 1990 and 1991. In 1991 Lomakin won a bronze medal with the USSR at the World Championships and participated at the Canada Cup a few months later.

The Flyers chose the skillful winger 138th overall in 1991 and brought him to North America part way through the next season. He registered 30 points in 57 games while getting used to the smaller ice surface in the NHL. In 1992-93, Lomakin was a fine defensive role player on the club and recorded a solid plus/minus rating of +15 on a team that missed the playoffs.

In June, 1993, Lomakin was picked by the Florida Panthers at the Expansion Draft to add offense and generate fan interest. He scored 19 goals and helped the club set an expansion team record with 83 points. Following the Owner's Lockout in 1995, Lomakin seemed rusty and recorded a mere seven points in 31 games. He returned to Europe and played with HC Fribourg-Gotteron of Switzerland and as well as Berlin and Frankfurt of the German Bundesliga before retiring in 1997.

Andrea Lomakin passed away on December 9th, 2006. Lomakin will forever be remembered as an international star in the USSR.
