Description:
Vladimir Igorevich Malakhov (Russian: Владимир Игоревич Малахов, Vladimir Igorević Malachov; born August 30, 1968) is a Russian retired professional ice hockey player currently under contract with the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League (NHL). He has also played in the Russian Super League.

Malakhov was drafted by the New York Islanders in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft, tenth round, 191st overall. He has played for Spartak Moscow, CSKA Moscow, New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens, New Jersey Devils (winning the Stanley Cup in 2000), New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.

Controversy

In 2000, Malakhov, was suspended by the Montreal Canadiens for going skiing at the Mont-Tremblant ski resort, while dealing with a knee injury that prevented him from playing a game that season. Shortly after, he was traded to the New Jersey Devils

On December 19, 2005, reports surfaced that Malakhov, who joined the Devils for the second time, had unexpectedly retired from the NHL. However, shortly after the story broke, his agent claimed that Malakhov had not retired and was taking a leave of absence "to deal with some internal, personal and medical issues." This claim was disputed by Lou Lamoriello, Devils CEO, president, general manager, and interim head coach. Lamoriello rejected the request for a leave of absence and treated Malakhov's absence as a retirement. This marked the end of Malakhov's pro career.
