Tatarinov's Place in History: In October 1990, while starring for Moscow Dynamo, Tatarinov was released by Soviet Union to enter the NHL. He arrived in Washington on Oct. 20, 1990, after Soviet officials gave him what was once unimaginable permission to make the trip. As a result, at age 24, Tatarinov became the first young Soviet player (under age 30) to be allowed to enter the NHL without having to defect from his home country. The deal for Tatarinov's release was worked out in a series of intense negotiations between Soviet officials and Jack Button, Washington's director of player personnel. The Capitals reportedly paid the Soviets between $200,000 and $400,000 for letting Tatarinov leave home. He agreed to a Capitals contract while still in Moscow, and then came to Washington after the Caps arranged visas for Tatarinov, his wife, and their 2-year-old baby, Vladimir. Tatarinov later said that even though he really wanted to play in the NHL, he had never considered defecting because "I wanted everybody's blessing." Although Tatarinov's ability to enter the NHL was nothing short of a breakthrough, less than one year later, the Soviet Union collapsed, opening the NHL floodgates for Soviet players of all ages.
Personal: Worked as radio color commentator for Canucks.
HOW HE GOT AWAY
TRADE: Washington traded Tatarinov to Quebec in exchange for Toronto's 1991 second-round pick (Eric Lavigne) on June 22, 1991.
