Valeri Bure

Full Name: Valeri Vladimirovich Bure
Last Team: Dallas Stars
Number: 8
Position: Right Wing
Height: 5’10”/178 cm
Weight: 180 lbs/82 kg
Born: June 13, 1974 in Moscow, RUS
Drafted: Selected by the Montreal Canadiens in 2nd round (33rd overall) of the 1992 Entry Draft

Strengths: Bure had many of the same electrifying traits as his older brother, Pavel. “The Pocket Rocket” was as good at creating plays as he was at scoring timely goals. He had one of the NHL’s most dangerous slapshots.

Weaknesses: Bure played best as a supporting player on talented teams, but he was not always dependent when entrusted with being the primary offensive threat of a team. Valeri also was also prone to injuries from NHL’s physical game and retired very early.

Biography: Coming soon
