Steve Moses is the first SKA outfield American player to play for the club. Only goaltenders Garth Snow and Robert Esche had represented SKA from America.
Steve is also the 13th SKA player in Russian championships and the KHL to score on his debut. His marker came 28 seconds before the final buzzer.
Vadim Shipachyov now has points against 29 KHL teams for SKA. He has either an assist or goal against every competing KHL club at the moment.
Following his goal, Evgeny Dadonov has 94 (47+47) points from 114 SKA appearances. While playing for Traktor, it took his 162 matches to reach this landmark.
From the past five matches, Nikita Gusev has seven points (3+4). He has at least one point from all of those games, and this is a repeat of his own personal best. From the 5th to the 15th of February 2015, he picked up points in five games on the bounce for HC Yugra Khanty Mansiysk.
Defenceman Andrei Kuteikin scored his second goal against his former club Salavat. Both of them have come on the powerplay, while he also netted once for Salavat against SKA with a man's advantage.
