The Daily: Ex-Red Wings Star Fedorov Leads CSKA to Back-to-Back Titles; Bruins Making Goalie Switch for Game 7?

2022-23 was Horcoff’s first full season as GM of the AHL Griffins

Red Wings assistant GM Shawn Horcoff found running the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins to be challenging.

Former Detroit Red Wings star Sergei Fedorov can add another unique first to his Hall of Fame resume. With a 3-2 victory over Ak Bars Kazan on Saturday in Game 7 of the KHL final series, Fedorov coached CSKA Moscow to a second consecutive Gagarin Cup title.

The victory makes Fedorov, who won back-to-back Stanley Cups with the Red Wings in 1996-97 and 1997-98, the only person to win consecutive Stanley Cups as a player and win consecutive Gagarin Cups as a coach.

The 1993-94 Hart Trophy winner as NHL MVP, Fedorov is a three-time Stanley Cup champion. He also won with the 2001-02 Red Wings. As well, he’s been part of three Gagarin Cup wins. Fedorov was GM of CSKA Moscow when the club won the 2018-19 Gagarin Cup.
