Many experts on Soviet hockey would name Valery Vasiliev as one of the most successful Russian players in the history of the game.

Born in Gorky (Nizny Novgorod), Valery was brought to Dynamo Moscow in 1967 for his promising results in the junior teams. The young prospect impressed Moscow recruiters with his strength, skating skills and passing.

Like his teammate Alexander Maltsev, Vasiliev spent his hockey career with Dynamo Moscow and, though he received plenty of gold medals and awards on the international level, he wasn't able to capture gold in the USSR Championship.

Vasiliev established himself as a flashy blueliner that loved to play physical game with effective and seemingly effortless bodychecking and impressive scoring results.
