BLESSED WITH AN INCREDIBLE ON-ICE VISION, DEFENSEMAN VLADIMIR MALAKHOV FOUND SUCCESS FROM THE MOMENT HE ARRIVED IN MONTREAL, NOTCHING THREE SEASONS OF AT LEAST 30 POINTS.

In April 1995, the Canadiens acquired the rights to Vladimir Malakhov, along with Pierre Turgeon, from the New York Islanders in a trade that sent Kirk Muller, Craig Darby and Mathieu Schneider to Long Island. Upon his arrival in Montreal, Malakhov quickly established himself as one of the Habs’ top offensive defensemen.

The hulking Russian rearguard spent just one week in the minors before making the leap to the NHL. He joined the Islanders early in the 1992-93 season after being selected in the 10th round of the 1989 draft, 191st overall. He developed his offensive instincts over the course of the next two and a half seasons and became a solid presence on the blue line.

During his first season with the Habs, the native of Sverdlovsk recorded 28 points. After a 30-point sophomore campaign in 1996-97, Malakhov led all Canadiens defensemen with 13 goals and 44 points the following season.

He repeated the feat in 1998-99, using his hard and accurate passes to quickly and easily set up his teammates and launch an attack, notching 21 assists.

A knee injury in 1999-2000 slowed the 6-foot-4, 227-pound defenseman. On March 1, 2000, Malakhov was traded to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for Sheldon Souray, Josh Dewolf and a draft pick. The big Russian went on to win the only Stanley Cup of his career that spring.

Malakhov joined the New York Rangers following the season, spending three years with the Blueshirts. After a brief stay in Philadelphia, Malakhov returned to the Devils in 2005-06. The following season, despite rumors of his retirement, he was traded to San Jose, but never played a game for the Sharks.
