Alexander Drozdetsky also known as Aleksandr Drozdetsky (born 10 November 1981), is a Russian former professional ice hockey player. He played 14 seasons primarily in the Russian Superleague (RSL) and Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

Drozdetsky was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 3rd round (94th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Inge Hammarström, the Flyers' chief European scout at the time and who had in previous drafts successfully lobbied for the Flyers to select Peter Forsberg, Mikael Renberg, Dmitri Yushkevich, and Janne Niinimaa, likened Drozdetsky to a young Igor Larionov and predicted he would be playing for the Flyers within two years.[1]
