Serhiy Haiduchenko (Ukrainian: Сергій Гайдученко; Russian: Серге́й Гайдученко, Sergei Gaiduchenko; born June 6, 1989) is a Ukrainian professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for Kuban Krasnodar of the Higher Hockey League. (VHL)

Early career[edit]

Gaiduchenko began his career in Kiev, playing for the junior team at the Ldinka Hockey School. His first coach was Anatolii Donika, a successful former defenseman of the team Sokil Kyiv. Scouts from Yaroslavl took notice of his play, and invited him to move there and join the organization.

International Play[edit]

Team Ukraine has approached Gaiduchenko to join, but so far he has only rebuffed any offers. At one point, his ambitions were to play for Russia's team. However, due to IIHF rules concerning changing nationality, he did not qualify to play for the Russian team until after June 24, 2008.[1] He played with the Russian Under-18 squad in two non-IIHF events prior to this date, however, since becoming eligible he has not played for Russia. He held negotiations to play for the Ukrainian team in 2011 but still withheld.[2] In 2014 he finally joined the team.
