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.

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.
