Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Igor Vyazmikin
Russian winger Igor Vyazmikin spent six seasons playing in his hometown of Moscow before moving on to Khimik Voskresensk for parts of two seasons starting in 1989-90. It was during his second year with them that his career took a major turn when Vyazmikin left his club team and joined the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers.

Vyazmikin was the very last player selected in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft and the Oilers suited him up for four games during the 1990-91 campaign. Vyazmikin, who played both wings, was able to score a goal in his short time as a big league player. That season with Edmonton's farm club he was just under a point-a-game with 31 points in 33 American Hockey League contests and he added three goals and five points for them during the playoffs as well.

In 1991-92 Vyazmikin played in the International League with both the Milwaukee Admirals and the Phoenix Roadrunners, but he played very little and didn't enjoy any success. The following year he was with the Fargo-Moorhead Express of the AHA and was a big part of that club's offense finishing second in team scoring with 56 points in 24 games.

He next surfaced four years later in Finland and later added a final season in the Russian League before retiring as a player.
