Evgeny Paladiev

Evgeny Paladiev played in 3 games in the 1972 Summit Series, collecting no points. The following comments, made by Oleg Spassky who was a sportswriter with Smena, sum up Paladiev's series very well:

"Some of our players looked out of place with the Canadian professionals. Paladiev was one of them and that is why he didn't see much action in the series."

The only quote by the defenseman we can find seems to suggest that Paladiev would agree with Spassky's comments:

"I thought I was prepared for the series, but that was a mistake. I had no idea professionals like Peter Mahovlich and Dennis Hull were so strong."
