At the age of 17 years, seven months and 16 days, forward Nikita Chibrikov became the youngest player to score for SKA in the KHL. The previous record belonged to Vasily Podkolzin who netted his maiden marker for our senior team when 18 years, six months and 28 days of age. However, if we take the Russian championship into account, then Yury Trubachyov (17 years, six months, 28 days) and Fyodor Tyutin (17 years, two months and eight days) did score their first goals for the main SKA team when younger than Nikita
Fellow forward Alexei Tsyplakov tallied an assist on his KHL debut. He is the first SKA player under the age of 20 to register a point in his first match.
Interestingly, Alexei followed in the footsteps of his father Yury in playing for SKA in a competitive senior game. Only nine father and son partnerships have represented SKA.
In 50 SKA matches in the KHL, Mikhail Maltsev has scored two goals and dished out eight assists.
Ivan Volodin scored his first SKA goal and made an assist in his third game for our senior team.
