Krylya Sovetov Moscow
Team USSR # 23
Yuri Lebedev was a forward of the famous Lebedev-Anisin-Bodunov line in the 1970's. All three players began to play hockey in CSKA after graduation from its youth hockey program. They were the ones that led a relatively unspectacular Krylya Sovetov team to the USSR chamoionship in 1974. Lebedev was not as slick in skating as his linemates but he was a fighting spirit behind the successes of his line and had great stick handling skills. He was one of the most respected forwards in the Soviet hockey and played for the national team longer than his linemates.
