Igor Larionov Detroit Red Wings Red Louisville TPS Game Worn Gloves Autographed
Lot #508

These red hockey gloves by Louisville were game worn by Hall of Famer Igor Larionov while playing for the Detroit Red Wings. Larionov is considered one of the greatest Russian players in history. He began playing professionally for the Soviet Union at 17 years of age. Igor partook in his first of 3 Canada Cups in 1981. He would partake in 3 different Olympics, the World Cup of Hockey, Rendezvous ‘87, a couple of Super Series and numerous other international competitions. Igor owns 6 Gold Medals, was a 4-time 1st Team USSR All Star and was named the 1988 USSR Player of the Year. He will be best remembered for centering the legendary ‘KLM’ line that included wingers Sergei Makarov and Vladimir Krutov.

After a dozen years in Russia, Larionov joined the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks who had the foresight to draft him in the 11th round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. Igor played for Vancouver for 3 seasons and then spent parts of 3 more in San Jose. In 1995-96, Larionov had the good fortune to join the Detroit Red Wings where he was teamed up with some of the finest Russian born players on the planet. Over the next 8 years, Larionov and the Red Wings won 3 Stanley Cups. Larionov retired following the 2003-04 season and was rightfully a first ballot inductee into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008.



These red Louisville gloves have the player name “Larionov” stitched to the cuff. Igor has autographed each in black sharpie.
