Pavel Bure Net Worth $70 Million
Born in Moscow, Russia, Bure is the son of legendary swimmer Vladimir and Tatiana Bure. When Bure turned 12 his parents divorced and he lived with his mother. Despite his father’s desire for him to pursue swimming, Bure fell in love with ice hockey, and from the age of six tried out for the CSKA Moscow hockey school despite his lack of experience. Eventually, he improved so that at the age of 11, he was named the best forward in the league. At the age of 14, he became a member of the Central Red Army’s Junior team.
With his love for the sport, Bure began his professional career at the age of 16, joining the Central Red Army team in 1987 as a filler for regular players when they didn’t show up. After a year, he finally got his chance and became a full-time member of the team. He immediately garnered 17 goals during the 1988 season, and became one of the highest scorers of all time. His early years playing in Russia helped establish his career in ice hockey, and also his net worth.
In 1989, Bure left the Central Red Army and decided to enter the NHL. At first, the NHL had some doubts on drafting him, but after a long process he was picked as 113th overall in the sixth round of the 1989 Draft. He signed with the Vancouver Canucks for an initial four-year deal, and was the second highest paid player at that time, tremendously increasing his wealth.
During Bure’s time with the Canucks, he earned several accolades including the Calder Memorial Trophy in the 1991-92 season, led the NHL goals-scoring in the 1993-94 season, and helped the team to win the 1994 Stanley Cup. He stayed with the team until 1998 and decided to leave due to personal reasons.
In 1999, Bure was traded to the Florida Panthers where he once again made history for his scoring. In his first season with the team, he was awarded the Rocket Richard Trophy for his success in a 58-goal season. The following season, he broke his own record by scoring 59 goals, earning once again the Rocket Richard Trophy. After three years, he was traded to the New York Rangers in 2002.
In 2005, Bure decided to retire while he was with the Rangers because of a persistent knee injury. His years in the NHL certainly helped increase his overall net worth.
Aside from playing in the NHL, Bure also played for the Soviet Union and competed for the Russian Team in two Winter Olympics. In 2012, he was inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and in 2017 he was named one of the 100 greatest NHL players in history.
In terms of his personal life, Bure has been married to model Alina Khasanova since 2009 and have a son together, Pavel Jr. Pavel was previously briefly married to model Jayne Bohn in 1991, apparently to assist with residency requirements in North America – the marriage was ‘dissolved’ the following year. He also had a brief relationship with Russian tennis star Anna Kournikova in the late 1990s.
