Former Red Wings forward Slava Kozlov played for 9 more years after the Red Wings traded him to Buffalo for Dominik Hasek in 2001. As it turns out, Kozlov settled in Atlanta, where he played for the Thrashers.
He slowly but surely migrated back home, buying a house in Spain and eventually heading home to Moscow, where he’s an assistant coach for his final professional hockey-playing stop, Spartak Moscow of the KHL.
Realitor.com’s Nicole Slaughter Graham reports that Kozlov is finally selling his home in the Atlanta neighborhood of Buckhead, and it’s opulent to say the least:
Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood is sought after for golf and luxury living—making it a hot spot for the rich and famous.
Russian hockey legend Slava Kozlov made his home in Buckhead during his eight-year stint with the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers, but now he’s ready to skate away. The winger has put his brick mansion on the market for $3.8 million.
The 6,500-square-foot estate is over the top and ornate down to the very last detail. The front entrance sets a lavish tone, and the exterior is completely covered in gorgeous brick. The rounded entryway with brick columns makes for a regal entrance into a home that’s just as fancy.
