Forward Maxim Karpov thanked SKA for the time which he spent in Saint Petersburg:
- There are a lot of great things to remember from my three seasons with SKA. It was wonderful to be a part of this team. It's a shame that we couldn't fight for the KHL Gagarin Cup until the end this year, we were 100% ready to win. We always had a fantastic group, and I think that will continue. It's not hard to adapt to becoming a SKA player. SKA is a true family, it's good that I was a member of the group for this long.
I want to extend a big thank you to the club, management, staff and the fans, who always support SKA. I felt their commitment to the team when I spent time with the ultras. I wish Saint Petersburg good luck, we'll see each other at the Ice Palace again!
