The Summit Series of September 1972 in Montreal. At the height of the Cold War, the Soviet national hockey team won the opening game against the NHL’s Team Canada 7 – 3, surprising the hockey community and the Western world at large.

For the Soviet team, virtually unknown in North America, the match wasn’t just about sportsmanship; it was a chance to unveil the strength of their country to the millions of viewers.  The game introduced the world to a new hockey star, player #17 Valeri Kharlamov, who scored two goals, catapulting himself to athletic stardom.

To the world, he will be known as simply “#17.” His dream – rooted in perseverance, talent, and lifelong lessons of Coach Anatoly Tarasov made #17 a legend of the world hockey.
