It took a long time for Nemchinov to come to North America since he first stepped on the ice back in his homeland, but
he came over at a good time for him personally. He was one of the first Russian-born players to win the Stanley Cup.
Yeah, us Devils fans remember that year in vain.
By the time the Devils got him, he was more a third line or fourth line player than anything. He could adapt to any role,
though, as he proved over the years, and his experience in playoff hockey was valuable for the runs in 00 and 01. That's
what made his time in New Jersey a success, despite only scoring 70 points in his tenure.
After leaving the Devils, he would play for 2 more years in Russia with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl before retiring.
He has served as the general manager of CSKA Moscow from 2009 to 2011. He also coached the Russian team that
played in the 2009 World Junior Tournament.
From all accounts, he lives in Rye these days. He had one daughter, Natalia, a sales executive for a lingerie company,
get married in 2015, and another daughter, Leeza, was an all-conference tennis player at William & Mary.
