"The Russian Five" documentary, the story on how the Russian born players made their way to Detroit, is being released on DVD.

According to the film's website, the DVD will be released on Friday, June 21st.   The film has been shown at screenings across the country.  It was also released to many markets in Michigan back in March.

I saw the film and it is one you don't want to miss if you are a Red Wings or hockey fan. It is the story on how the Russian Five, Sergei Fedorov, Igor Larionov, Vladimir Konstantinov, Slava Fetisov and Slava Kozlov came to Detroit.

The film also features many of the Red Wings players, coaches and broadcasters from the team at that time.

The film was released earlier this month for streaming on various streaming services.  Now you can own a copy on DVD.
