Vladimir Lutchenko is arguably one of the best defense players in the history of Soviet hockey. Lutchenko was notorious for his steady performance and unprecedented consistency throughout his career in hockey.

He was well respected among his teammates and recognized as an extremely reliable player in both CSKA and the national team. Although he had a powerful slapshot, his strongest part was his brilliant performance in defense.

Lutchenko set up the record for Soviet defense players when he scored 4 goals in a game against Sweden at the Izvestia Cup in 1975. His record still remains unbroken.
