Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andrei Vasilyev
Two seasons after being drafted by the New York Islanders late in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft left winger Andrei Vasilyev was in North America playing for the Islanders International Hockey League farm club.

Vasilyev spent 74 games in Denver with the Grizzlies and impressed the Islander brass with 28 goals and 65 points. The Islanders called him up for a two game look, but he didn't register any points. The following year he played 10 games with the Isles and scored 2 goals and 7 points. In 1996-87, his third year as a professional, he played 3 more games with the Islanders but did not score any points.

The 1997-98 campaign was spent in the minors where he hit career highs with 33 goals and 67 points. Most of the following season was also spent in the minors, though Vasilyev did resurface at the NHL level, for just one game.

This time he appeared for the Phoenix Coyotes, but again Vasilyev could not make an impression during his time in the big leagues. Out of options in North America, he elected to continue his career in Europe.

In 1999 Vasilyev took his skills to Germany to play in the Elite League. After a season with the Frankfurt Lions he moved on to the Revier the next season then settled in with the Berlin Capitals in 2001.
