Artur, you are right (as usual) - this kid on my photo is young Marcel Dionne.

Drummondville, Quebec native Marcel was born on 3 August 1951.
He played 18 NHL season, 1348 regulation games, scored 731 goals, registered 1040 assists (1771 points)

The Art Ross Trophy (1980) winner he was elected to the First All-Star Team twice (1977, 1980), twice to the Second All-Star Team Centre (1979, 1981), has won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy (1975, 1977) and the Lester B. Pearson Award (1979, 1980).

He is greatly respected by Russian fans for his scoring abilities, skills and gentleman behaviour on ice.

"There was an interview with Dionne by sport express and he was asked about the Soviet players he played against in the 1970s... amazingly, Marcel said there was this guy with the mustache, great skater played for the national team in the 1970s... he was a great player! guess who the guy was - B-A-L-D-E-R-I-S!
