1989 Alexander Mogilny Interview

Alexander Gennadevich Mogilny is a Russian former professional ice hockey player. After the 1989 World Championships in Stockholm where the USSR placed first, he left the Soviet team and defected to North America with the help of representatives of the Buffalo Sabres, the NHL club that had drafted him a year earlier in the 1988 NHL Entry Draft. Mogilny chose the number 89 in recognition of both the year he defected and his place in the draft, wearing #89 for his entire playing career.
