Russian notices `big eyes' // The Gazette. Montreal

After seven seasons in the Russian elite league, it hasn't taken Moncton Hawks defenceman Anatoli Fedotov long to see what professional hockey is all about in North America.

"They all have big eyes here," says Fedotov, 26. "The players are very intense. They want to kill you and they will do anything to win a hockey game."

Fedotov speaks little English, but the language of hockey comes much easier. He is assisted in an interview by Hawks winger Tod Hartje, who played one season in Russia after his collegiate career at Harvard.

Succinctly, Fedotov points to differences between the AHL and the Russian league.

"Small rink here with many more penalties," he says in broken English. "There is more passing in Russia and game is easier. Now, I must keep my head up and move the puck quickly before I get hit.

"As a defenceman, I must use my partner more than I did in Russia. Teamwork is more important than individual play.

"The schedule is hard. I played 48 games last year and this year we have 80. Long seasons here are hard on the body."

With all the adjustments Fedotov still says he's having "a lot of fun" and he enjoys the challenge of pro hockey. He scored eight points, including three goals, in his first 13 games.

Fedotov, who played for the Soviet Union in the 1987 Canada Cup, was also among league leaders in plus-minus ratings with a plus 10. Plus-minus statistics aren't recorded in Russia because "we only care about goals."

Hartje says Fedotov's hockey skills are obvious, but more importantly the former member of Moscow Dynamo has quickly become part of the team.

"He's had an easy transition because all the guys on the team think he's such a great guy," Hartje says. "He's always got a smile on his face and he's happy to be here. He likes to hang around with us just being one of the guys."

Hawks coach Robbie Laird says while Fedotov has proven he can adjust to the North American game, there's still plenty of room for improvement.

Fedotov is Gulls' new power hitter // The San Diego Union - Tribune.

Baltimore tough guy Terry Chitaroni was looking to put another notch in his hockey stick last season when Moncton defenseman Anatoli Fedotov skated into view.

The book on European hockey players is that they avoid on-ice conflicts the way bats avoid light. Fedotov being Russian, Chitaroni figured the encounter would last a few seconds.

He was right.

"Anatoli knocked him out before anyone knew what happened," said Trevor Halverson, who witnessed the one-sided affair. "He hit him like he was hitting a speed bag. Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom.

"He doesn't throw punches real hard, but he throws them fast. We had to carry Chitaroni off the ice."

Fedotov, 27, is delivering blows for the Gulls this season. He was signed by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the off-season and assigned to San Diego last month.

No one is sure how long he'll remain with the Gulls, but if he continues to play as well as he has the first two games, crunching opponents and opportunistically jumping into the offensive flow, it won't be long.

"He's a guy we're going to wait and see if he gets his game together," said Mighty Ducks assistant general manager Pierre Gauthier. "He could be a call-up, for sure, depending on how things are going here and how he's doing.

"He's got to play under control a little more. He's a good skater and likes to go to the offense, but he gets out of position sometimes by doing that. In the NHL, high-risk players cost you dearly. There are a lot of people who can put the puck behind the goalie if they get a chance."

Fedotov, who played six seasons with the Moscow D'amo, has been a pleasant surprise for the Gulls. He had a poor camp with the Ducks, followed by a poor performance while playing for San Diego in an exhibition game against Anaheim. There was concern he might sulk about being sent down.

But if Fedotov is upset, he's taking it out on opponents. He easily had the hit of the game on Friday and Saturday against Phoenix, catching the eyes of players, coaches and fans.

In the first game, he checked winger Dan Currie coming across the blue line and deposited him on his rear end. The next night, he stopped Rob Lang in his tracks at the top of the crease. It was kind of like watching a VW Bug hit the side of a wall at 70 mph.

"Those were unbelievable big-time hits," said Gulls coach Harold Snepsts, who delivered his share during his 17-year NHL career. "You know they were big-time because players from both teams noticed them."

Fedotov seemed almost amused at the reaction to his crunching checks. What's the big deal? he seemed to wonder.

"I played those two games like I play every time," he said. "In Russia, we spend most of the time practicing technical and skill things, so some people don't think we have physical players."

Snepsts shakes his head whenever people say Europeans are "soft" players.

"I think the first wave of Russians who came over might not have been that aggressive, but the second wave has had some hitters," Snepsts said. "There is a guy named Kasparaitis who hits, and he doesn't care who he hits."

Darius Kasparaitis, born in the former Soviet Union, is a defenseman with the New York Islanders. Never heard of him? Think back to last season's NHL playoffs, when the Islanders knocked off the two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

Remember the guy constantly in Mario Lemieux's face, the one with the puffy black eye, who threw around his body as if he could get replacement parts at the corner store? That was Kasparaitis.

Fedotov is more judicious when throwing around his body. He catches players at the right time and, bam, delivers the blow.

"Some of the reason you don't see a lot of physical play in Europe is because of the bigger rinks," said Snepsts. "But if you can line up players on Olympic-size ice, you can line them up here. Anatoli has done that. He's got a lot of talent, a lot of talent."

Duck Defender Fedotov Retires // Los Angeles Times

 Mighty Duck defenseman Anatoli Fedotov, who spent most of last season with the San Diego Gulls of the International Hockey League, announced his retirement Thursday. He has decided to return to his native Russia.

When the Ducks' training camp opened, Fedotov, 28, was absent. He later told General Manager Jack Ferreira he was considering quitting.

Fedotov played only three games for the Ducks last season, but had 26 points (14 goals and 12 assists) in 66 games for the Gulls. He was the Ducks' 10th-round selection in the 1993 entry draft. He also spent six seasons playing for Moscow Dynamo in Russia and one season playing for Moncton in the American Hockey League.

The Ducks are expected to make a number of roster moves today.

Fedotov makes season debut with Gulls // Orange County Register.

 Defenseman Anatoli Fedotov made his 1994-95 debut Thursday, one day after signing a one-year contract with the Ducks' minor league affiliate in San Diego. Fedotov, who played in three games with the Ducks last season, failed to report for training camp last month.

Ten days later he resurfaced long enough to announce he had decided to retire, then wasn't heard from again until earlier this week when Fedotov's agent contacted Gulls general manager Don Waddell to say his client had changed his mind and wished to play. The Gulls lost Thursday, 4-0, to Las Vegas.

Fedotov, 28, who played six seasons for Moscow Dynamo before coming to Anaheim as a 10th-round selection in the 1993 entry draft, said Thursday he returned home to Moscow for two weeks to comfort his mother, who reportedly is going through a divorce.

"I feel very good and I will try starting tonight to show my best abilities," Fedotov said, adding he believes he can play "five or six more years."
