Hockey Player
    (June 22, 1980- )
    Born in Tolyatti, Russian Federation
    Drafted 44th overall by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft
    Goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks (2002-07), Phoenix Coyotes (2007-11), Philadelphia Flyers (2011-13), Edmonton Oilers (2013-14) and the Minnesota Wild (2014)
    His nickname is 'Bryz.'
    He played two games in three seasons combined before making the Ducks roster full-time.
    Despite posting a 26-22-5 record after being claimed off waivers, he followed up by posting a 26-31-6 record in his first full season as the Coyotes starting goalie.
    He continued the Jets/Coyotes franchise record of goalies failing to guide the team past the first round of the playoffs.
    He was compared to Roger Dorn in an article that compared the 2009-10 Phoenix Coyotes season to that of the movie 'Major League.'
    Despite posting impressive numbers for the Ducks' farm team in Cincinnati, he was passed over on the team's depth chart in favor of Martin Gerber.
    He served as the Ducks starting goalie during the first three games of the team's Stanley Cup run, while Jean-Sebastien Giguere was away for family reasons.
    His stellar play in relief of Giguere caught notice from the Coyotes, who were in search of a full-time starter.
    He was a member of the Duck franchise's first Stanley Cup championship team (2007).
    He singlehandedly saved the Coyotes 2007-08 season, after the team's tandem of Mikael Tellqvist, Alex Auld and David Aebischer proved to be inconsistent.
    He plays for Russia in international competition, and has earned medals in the World Juniors, World Championships and Olympics.
