By scoring after a mere eight seconds of play, forward Anton Burdasov tallied SKA's earliest away goal in Russian history. The previous record of 17 seconds had been set by fellow forward Andrei Kuzmenko on October 29 this year against Dynamo in Moscow.
Overall, in 1800 Russian tournament matches, SKA have only twice scored during the maiden 10 seconds of play. Swedish forward Jimmie Ericsson hit the target after seven seconds during the 2014/2015 campaign against Lokomotiv Yaroslavl in Saint Petersburg.
In 950 KHL games, SKA have scored in the first minute on 37 occasions.
Anton Burdasov now boasts 300 (158+142) points in 604 KHL appearances. 173 (87+76) of them have been registered for SKA.
Burdasov has indeed become the 46th player in the KHL to tally a minimum of 300 league points. Furthermore, this match marked his first goal against Metallurg Magnitogorsk as a SKA player.
Mikhail Vorobyov has picked up 14 (3+11) points in 31 KHL games so far this season, a new personal record for the forward in the championship. His previous record was 13 (5+8) points in 33 matches for Salavat Yulaev Ufa in the 2020/2021 season.
