Ilya Sergeyevich Solaryov also known as Ilya Solarev (Russian: Илья Сергеевич Соларёв; born August 2, 1982) is a Kazakhstani professional ice hockey winger who currently plays for Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).[1] He was selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 9th round (281st overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Solaryov has played 119 regular season games and 14 playoff contests in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) with Barys Astana.[2]
