DESPITE HIS SHORT TENURE WITH THE HABS, SERGEI BEREZIN NONETHELESS CAN LAY CLAIM TO A HISTORICAL MOMENT IN FRANCHISE HISTORY.

Sergei Berezin’s stay with the Canadiens was a brief one. A gifted skater with a hard, accurate shot, the Russian left winger appeared in 29 games during the 2001-02 regular season, and six more in the playoffs.

After three strong seasons with 31, 38 and 49 goals for Khimik Voskersensk of the Russian Super League and the Cologne Sharks in Germany, Berezin made his NHL debut in 1996 with the Toronto Maple Leafs, who chose him 256th overall in the 10th round of the 1994 entry draft.

Renowned for frequently losing his helmet, Berezin continued his strong offensive production in North America. He scored 25 goals during his first season and established himself as a dangerous scorer with 37, 26 and 22 goals from 1998-99 to 2000-01.

He began the following season with the Phoenix Coyotes before he was traded to Montreal in exchange for Brian Savage in January 2002.

Following the season, the Habs traded him to the Chicago Blackhawks, where he spent one season. He retired from the NHL in December 2003 as a member of the Washington Capitals and returned home to play in Russia.

During his brief stint with the Canadiens, Berezin managed to stake out a permanent place in the team’s record book. On January 27, 2002, Berezin scored the 10,000th home-ice goal in team history against the San Jose Sharks.
