Valeri was born the younger brother of NHL Hall of Fame inductee, Pavel Bure, so it is no wonder that he followed his brother’s steps and became a successful hockey player. Prior to moving to Canada and joining Spokane Chiefs in the Western Hockey League, Valeri played one season of junior hockey in the Soviet Championship League under the colors of CSKA Moscow. In his rookie season for the Chiefs, Valeri scored 49 points in 53 games, and his potential was recognized by the Montreal Canadiens when he was drafted #33 at the National Hockey League Entry Draft. During the 1992-93 season which Valeri spent with the Spokane Chefs, he scored 147 points in total, and with 68 goals, he still holds the Chief’s franchise seasonal record. These engagements provided the basis for Valeri Bure’s future hockey career as well as for his net worth.

Valeri Bure’s professional career officially began when he joined the Canadiens for the 1994-95 season. After three years spent in Montreal, Valeri was traded to Calgary Flames, and soon after joining the team, due to his irrepressible scoring ability, he placed himself among team’s top scorers. Valeri was selected for the World team at the All-Star Game in 2000, when he played alongside his brother Pavel. These accomplishments certainly positively impacted the overall wealth of Valeri Bure.

In 2001, Valeri Bure transferred to the Florida Panthers, where he stayed for the next two seasons, although the majority of the time he spent on the sideline due to a series of injuries. In 2003 he moved again, this time to the St. Louis Blues. However, he returned to the Panthers for the 2004 season which, as it later turned out, was his last as well as the peak performance season in the NHL, during which he earned $3.1 million, adding a significant sum to his net worth in total.

Apart from NHL, Valeri Bure has also played for the Russian national team, firstly as a junior at the World Junior Championship in 1994, when they won the bronze medal, and later in the 1998 Olympic Games, helping his fellow countryman to win the silver medal. Before retiring from professional hockey in 2004, Valery Bure wore the national jersey one more time, in the 2002 Winter Olympics held in Salt Lake City when Russia finished with the bronze medal. All these involvements have contributed to Valeri Bure’s wealth.

When it comes to his personal life, Valeri Bure has been married since 1996 to Candace Cameron, an American actress, producer and author with whom he has 3 children; they currently reside in St Helena, California.

In 2007, Valeri and Candace opened a restaurant in Florida called The Milk and Honey Cafe, but abandoned the business shortly after. Subsequently, Valeri invested in the wine making business and currently operates the Bure Family Wines in the Napa Valley.

Valeri Bure has also taken part in the Battle of the Blades in 2010, a figure skating reality show, in which he and his partner Ekaterina Gordeeva, won the main prize of $100,000 that was donated to charitable causes.
