“Resisting competition at this age is expensive” – agent Dementyev about Bobrovsky

Hockey agent Alexey Dementyev estimates that the Russian goalie has 390 victories “Florida” Sergei Bobrovsky in an NHL career is a great achievement.

Earlier, Bobrovsky won the 390th victory of his career in the NHL regular season match against Detroit. According to this indicator, the Russian goalkeeper overtook the Czech Dominik Hasek (389 victories in 735 matches) and occupies 15th place in the history of the NHL. Among European NHL goaltenders, Bobrovsky is now second in wins, behind Swede Henrik Lundqvist (459 wins).

— I am very happy that Bobrovsky has surpassed Hasek in terms of NHL victories. This is a great achievement, and not just dry numbers. Behind this is enormous work, carried out not only by Sergei himself, but also by his entire entourage – his family and his coaching team. Bobrovsky deserves credit for everything he has accomplished in the NHL. It is worth a lot to resist competition and conquer it over others at this age. Therefore, I wish Sergei courage for every subsequent match he plays.

Unfortunately, NHL history is littered with quality players and great players who had great careers in the league but never won a Stanley Cup. Of course, the absence of this trophy is a bit unpleasant, but it’s not all down to Sergei. I can give you an example of an interesting story related to Ray Bourque. He played almost his entire life for Boston and at the end of his career he was traded to Colorado, with whom he eventually won the Stanley Cup. Every hockey player has his own path,” Dementyev said, as quoted by RT.

During his NHL career, Bobrovsky, 35, played for Philadelphia and Columbus, and has played for Florida since 2019.
