"Thank you to SKA for these three years in Saint Petersburg. I want to extend my thanks to the management and the entire system of the club. I had the opportunity to play for the best club in the country, and here there are all of the required facilities for players to only think about ice hockey. These three years were the best of my sporting career. Olympic gold and the KHL Gagarin Cup prove this. I wish the club new successes and victories!
I would like to extend a special thanks to the fans, I always felt their support both on and off the ice. The sold-out Ice Palace will always remain in my heart. These three seasons were great!" stated forward Nikolai Prokhorkin, who has left SKA.
