Unified Medal Controversy

Russian goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin was the third on the depth chart and never played when the Unified Team won gold in Albertville, France. Instead of giving the gold to someone who didn't play, coach Viktor Tikhonov kept it. Only players are given Olympic medals. Coaches and management do not. The medal was finally returned to him, in a private medal ceremony during the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah
