Larionov joining the Devils was to be the capper of a very storied career that included being the feedman on the famed
KLM Line for the Red Army, being part of the very first group of Russians to join the NHL, and also winning 3 Stanley
Cups with the Detroit Red Wings with the possibility of a fourth in playing with the defending champs.
However, injuries, which had never really been an issue for Larionov in years prior, started to bite him, so to speak.
That's why he only played 49 games for the Devils. Those 11 points were the lowest total in his NHL career.
After he retired, he took to being a wine merchant. (His brands included the "Hattrick" and "Triple Overtime" labels.)
Also post-retirement, he had become a sports agent and the Director of Hockey Operations for SKA St. Petersburg in
He would be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008. He also joined the Hall's Selection Committee in 2011.
