SKA Hockey Club president Gennady Timchenko sent his New Year wishes:
An unforgettable year for SKA is coming to an end. Without doubt, 2017 will go down as a year when SKA not only won a second Gagarin Cup, but became Russian champions for the first time in history.
Our team finished the year with a confident lead in first position of the table. During this season, SKA's performances have suggested that more victories than disappointments are waiting for us in 2018. I have no doubt that a full Ice Palace will inspire the players in new matches.
Today, on the last day of 2017, I would like to wish SKA fans family happiness for the new year. Let all of your wishes come true in 2018.
Happy New Year!
