HC SKA defenseman Alex Grant:

- You are now a SKA player. How did the negotiations go?

- I am really happy to join such a powerful club like SKA. In truth, the negotiations went really smoothly. SKA is an excellent organisation, the system is great and the coaches are experienced. As soon as SKA began to show interest, I made the decision that Saint Petersburg is where I want to play.

- How well do you know the KHL? You've played in this league for quite a few years now.

- I feel comfortable in the KHL, I like the style of ice hockey in this championship and the quality is excellent.

- You have previously played at the Saint Petersburg Ice Palace against SKA. What impressions were you left with?

- Matches against SKA for Jokerit Helsinki were always special. Games here were always emotional, and the supporters inside the Ice Palace created a wonderful atmosphere. This is how ice hockey should be. Furthermore, this city has plenty of history, so I always tried to make use of my time here when on the road with Jokerit. Everything is fantastic here, from the architecture to the restaurants.

- How have you spent your summer break?

- I have spent a lot of time with my family and friends, enjoying the sun and warm weather. I like to play golf in my spare time. Nevertheless, training sessions are still important for me in the summer, I began working out again after just a few weeks off.

- What do you expect from your maiden season as a SKA player?

- SKA is always expected to be successful. From my side, I will do everything in my power to make sure that we achieve success and win the championship.
