HOW THE SEASON TURNED OUT
Due to an injury, Anton Belov missed the entire pre-season with SKA, as he only returned to the ice in September. Anton made his 2019/2020 KHL campaign debut on October 5 against Traktor Chelyabinsk.
He certainly stood out with his commitment. During the regular season alone, Anton contribued with 49 blocked shots, only trailing Artyom Zub who blocked 61 attempts.
Following his return, Anton changed defensive partnerships with regularity, but he was eventually paired up with Lukas Bengtsson in defence as they competed in 21 regular season games together and four in the ensuing Gagarin Cup playoffs.
Interestingly, Anton dished out assists for both Vasily Podkolzin's and Danila Galenyuk's maiden KHL markers. In the playoffs, the commanding defenseman managed to score the one goal, hitting the target in the fourth match against Vityaz on the road in Podolsk.
SKA swept Vityaz 4-0.
"There aren't any small details, you have to continue working hard and producing successful results," stated Anton when speaking to the media. "If you don't produce the required result, someone else will."
