Ruslan Fedotenko News


Ruslan Viktorovych Fedotenko (Ukrainian: Руслан Вікторович Федотенко; born January 18, 1979) is a Ukrainian professional ice hockey winger who is currently playing for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League. A two-time Stanley Cup champion, in his NHL career he has played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning, New York Islanders and the Pittsburgh Penguins. Internationally, Fedotenko has competed for Ukraine in the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Fedotenko went undrafted and first entered the NHL after being signed by the Philadelphia Flyers in 1999. After two seasons with the Flyers, he was traded in 2002 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, along with two second round draft picks, in exchange for Tampa Bay's first round draft pick, which was used to draft Joni Pitkänen.

In 2004, Fedotenko won his first Stanley Cup, scoring the championship-winning goal in game seven of the finals against the Calgary Flames. It was Tampa Bay's first Stanley Cup in franchise history. After a career-high 26-goal, 41-point campaign in 2005–06, Fedotenko was re-signed as a restricted free agent in July 2006 to a one-year contract worth $1.65 million.
