Dmitri Sergeyevich Upper (Russian: Дмитрий Серге́евич Уппер; born July 27, 1978) is a Kazakhstani former professional ice hockey center.[1] He also holds Russian citizenship.

Career

Upper was selected by the New York Islanders in the 5th round (136th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, after scoring 20 points and 50 penalty minutes in his first season in the Russian Superleague with Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod. He was traded to Ak Bars Kazan midway through the 2000–01 season, and joined Spartak Moscow the following year. He had a career high 16 goals, as well as 76 penalty minutes in his first year with the club. He played four seasons with CSKA Moscow, scoring 27 points in 2005–06, before rejoining Spartak Moscow in 2007. He was named team captain in 2009, and had 30 points that season, but was traded to Atlant Moscow Oblast in the 2010 offseason. Injuries limited his productivity in his first season with the team. In 2012, he joined Kazakhstan team Barys Astana.[2]

International career

Upper has represented his native Kazakhstan in multiple tournaments, including the 1996 and 1997 IIHF World U20 Championship, the Ice Hockey World Championships in 2004, 2005 and 2011, and the 2006 Winter Olympics.
