Alexander Jurjewitsch Seliwanow ( Russian Александр Юрьевич Селиванов ; born March 23, 1971 in Moscow , Russian SFSR ) is a former Russian ice hockey player and today's coach , who was last assistant coach at Admiral Vladivostok from 2013 to 2015 .
Selivanov began professional ice hockey in the team of the traditional Russian club HK Spartak Moscow . In the 1988/89 season, the left-handed player made his debut as a 17-year-old in the top division of the former USSR , with one game remaining. The winger only made three games in the following season, in which he remained without a point, before he was able to make a big step towards becoming a regular in the 1990/91 season with 21 games in which he scored 3 goals and one assist .
In the 1991/92 season, the Russian made his breakthrough in the Russian league with six goals and seven assists in 31 games. In the following season Selivanov reached a total of 31 points in 42 games and thus finally rose to the ranks of the top players in the league. Due to increasing performances, the National Hockey League became aware of the attacker, so that the Philadelphia Flyers secured the rights to the then 23-year-old in the sixth round in position 140 in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft . However, the Flyers swapped the rights to the junior player before the season for a four-round draft right to league rivals Tampa Bay Lightning . The 1994/95 season was marked by the lockout at the time . It was not until January that the league started playing and so Selivanov first had to play in the minor leagues . In a total of 18 appearances for the Atlanta Knights and the Chicago Wolves , the striker scored 4 goals and 8 points.
In the 1995/96 season , which was shortened to 48 games , Selivanov finally made 43 NHL appearances, in which he scored ten goals and reached 16 points. Only Roman Hamrlík , John Tucker , Petr Klíma and Brian Bradley scored more goals this season for the Tampa Bay Lightning , with 13 shots forming the top. In the following season, the Russian rose to the exquisite club of 30-goal scorers when, with 31 goals and 52 points, he became the third-best scorer and best scorer of a greatly improved team that even made it to the play-offs. In the following two years, however, the left-handed shooter did not reach this rate and only got 33 and 35 scorer points in 69 and 70 games. So it came about that the 1998/99 season was his last in Florida.
After only 19 points from 48 games, he was sent to Cleveland for two games in the IHL before being exchanged for Alexandre Daigle , the former top draft pick of 1993, to Edmonton . Selivanov finished the season with his new employer with 14 points and 8 goals from 29 games. In the end, he had a total of 27 hits and 47 points from 67 games. However, since his contract in Canada expired, the attacker finally switched to the newly founded Columbus Blue Jackets as an unrestricted free agent .
After an unsuccessful year in Columbus, Alexander Selivanov decided to return to Europe. The attacker moved to the DEL to the Frankfurt Lions for the 2001/02 season , where he was probably the most colorful personality in the league. But in the end he could not meet the exorbitant expectations despite a strong 61 points and 26 goals from 56 games and missed the play-offs with the Lions.
Selivanov went back to his homeland and was on the ice for HC Metallurg Magnitogorsk , where he was ultimately unable to convince with 12 points from 30 games. In the summer of 2003 he negotiated with Butch Goring , the then master trainer of the Krefeld Penguins , but ultimately preferred a much better paid offer from St. Petersburg. Here the Russian scored one goal and seven points in 21 appearances before he - frustrated by the defensive style of play in the Russian league - decided to move to Krefeld.
For the 2003/04 season , Alexander Seliwanow joined the penguins, where he was able to convince from the beginning and in a season that was unsuccessful for the team, his solos, his strong conclusion and his overview became a splash of color and a bearer of hope. 14 goals and 25 points from 30 games as well as strong performances at the Spengler Cup earned him a contract extension of two years until 2006. In the 2005/06 season , the attacker exceeded the mark of 55 points in the preliminary round, whereupon his contract was renewed for three years. Selivanov was in the 2005/2006 season with 30 goals top scorer of the DEL. On January 29, 2008, his contract with the Krefeld Penguins was terminated with immediate effect and he moved to the Swiss first division club Friborg-Gottéron . Two days later it was announced that the left shooter would return to the DEL for the 2008/09 season to storm for EV Duisburg . After the Füchse bankruptcy, he moved to HYS The Hague . At the beginning of the 2010/11 season he played three games for SC Bietigheim-Bissingen in the 2nd Bundesliga ice hockey, before he joined the now third-rate EV Duisburg after his contract was terminated in October 2010. For the 2011/12 season he returned to HYS The Hague in the Netherlands and became a player-coach at his ex-club.
He retired in 2012 and was the head coach of HYS The Hague for the 2012/13 season. Between 2013 and 2015 he was an assistant coach at Admiral Vladivostok .
Alexander Selivanov is married to the daughter of ice hockey legend Phil Esposito and has three children.
