One of the last players to be manufactured from the U.S.S.R., Vyacheslav Kozlov played for the Soviet Union as a Junior and was a two-time Silver Medalist in the World Junior Hockey Championship. Entering the NHL two months before his 20th birthday, Kozlov would provide a solid scoring touch for the Detroit Red Wings a team he was comfortable with as they had four other Russians on the team. With Detroit he would have two 70 Point seasons but more importantly was a cog in the machine that won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1997 & 1998.
