The Hockey Nomad Goes to Russia

In The Hockey Nomad Goes to Russia, Dave Bidini searches for the aging heroes of the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the USSR. In the film, Bidini becomes the only Canadian in history to dress as a member of the Russian Legends’ national team, playing left defence on a touring club featuring members of the 1972 Russian national team. The film features Alexander Yakushev, Yuri Blinov, Alexander Gusev and a 12-year-old Zhenya Kuznetsov, who six years later would be drafted by the Washington Capitals in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
