- As a result of the World U18 Championship, my summer break wasn't as long as in previous years. I managed to visit my grandmother and sister in Tyumen and Nizhny Tagil respectively for a couple of weeks, but now I am ready to prepare for the new season.

- What will you remember the World U18 Championship for?

- It was a fantastic tournament! There was a brilliant atmosphere there, and a lot of Russian fans were at our matches. All of our opponents were strong, so we had to play with a maximum amount of concentration.

- How is the SKA Development Camp going for you?

- Everything is organised at the highest level, plenty of detail is being applied to all aspects of the game. We're working on our technical ability, our speed, our playing intelligence and our focus. At the same time, we are also working out well in the gym.

- In the group with fellow forwards, how are you training?

- We are mainly working on how to score goals, that's our job! We are being taught how to make surprise decisions with the puck, and also how we need to strictly follow the game plan. We are practising shots from different positions on the ice, while also improving our speed, skating and movement.

- What are you expectations for the 2021/2022 campaign?

- I know that this training camp will certainly help, we're having the opportunity to train with the players from the senior team. The atmosphere here allows for us to show our best ice hockey. I will have serious motivation in the new season, I want to progress, make my KHL debut and be useful to the team.
