Fetisov, who heads the board of Continental Hockey League (KHL), arrived in Vancouver following an invitation by the International Hockey Federation, which would honor Olympic, world and Stanley Cup champions in the Canadian city on February 22.
The two-time Olympic champion said he followed closely Vancouver hockey matches before arriving in Canada.
"Those six teams which I observed in their first two matches are quite equal. I did not expect many teams here to perform such a [high] level [hockey]," Fetisov said.
He said the Russian team played "very good" against Latvia during its first match in Vancouver.
"I hope our delegation has brought good luck for our team, and all the sportsmen, not only hockey players, will perform well," Fetisov said.
Russia currently holds the 10th position in the overall medals standings with one gold, two silver and two bronze medals.
The Russian men's hockey team is second in the Group B, and women's team is third in Group B.
