As a former Russian National goalie, Andrei Trefilov won three international titles: Olympic Champion 1992, World Champion 1993 and European Champion 1991. In 1998, he also won Olympic silver with the Russian National team.
Andrei started his career as a professional hockey player with the traditional Russian team Dynamo Moscow in 1990, where he won the Russian Championship twice (1990/1991 and 1991/1992) in his first two seasons. In 1991 the Calgary Flames selected Andrei in the 261st place in the NHL Entry Draft, whereupon he transferred from Russia to the NHL one year later. There he played, among other clubs, for the Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres and Chicago Blackhawks. Trefilov ended his last season in North America with the Chicago Wolves, with whom he won the Turner Cup.
His return to Europe led Andrei to Düsseldorf in 2000, where he quickly became the crowd favorite of the DEG fans and where he would spend the next six seasons. His first season in 2000/2001 Andrei was voted DEL player of the year. Düsseldorf is where Andrei ended his professional hockey career topping it off by winning the “German Cup” and reaching the Finals with the DEG.
Since 2006 Andrei has been working together with Klaus as an agent. His focus mainly lies on the Russian market, but also on the promotion and recruitment of young players.
