Igor "the professor" Larionov (via Wiki)

Larionov is married to former figure skater Elena Batanova and has three children, Alyonka, Diana and Igor II. Currently, he is a professional wine merchant making wines under the labels "Hattrick" and "Triple Overtime" with wines from Australia and California

In July 2008, Larionov was named director of hockey operations for Russian hockey club SKA St. Petersburg

Lucky Luc Robitaille

Robitaille and his wife, Stacia, co-founded the non-profit charity Shelter for Serenity in 2005 to help families displaced by Hurricane Katrina, and has extended to needy children in the Los Angeles community as Echoes of Hope [1].[3][23]

Robitaille made an appearance in "Fire in the Ice," a season four episode of the TV series Bones. In the episode, he appears as himself in an hallucination had by lead character Seeley Booth, when Booth is knocked out while playing in a recreational hockey game.

Robitaille also appeared in the movie Sudden Death as the only real skater on the team. The directors used this to their advantage sending Robitaille in on a breakaway to tie the game as time expired.[24]

In Canada, Robitaille appeared alongside New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur in a Delissio frozen pizza commercial, where the two watch footage of Luc's many goals against the legendary goalie while sharing a pizza.
