For the first time in the KHL, SKA earned two victories against Dinamo Riga during one regular season without conceding any goals. On 30 September 2019, SKA had defeated the Latvians 3:0 on the road.
Evgeny Ketov is the first KHL player to participate in 400 SKA matches. Overall, if we take into account all national championships (including the Soviet league), Evgeny is the 15th player to make 400 official SKA appearances.
Fellow forward Vladimir Tkachyov dished out his 100th KHL assist in his 231st game. So far, Vladimir has participated in 43 official SKA matches, contributing with 22 assists and 10 goals.
Swedish goalkeeper Magnus Hellberg, stopping all 12 Dinamo Riga shots he faced, has now registered 10 SKA shutouts in the KHL. Only Robert Esche (15), Mikko Koskinen (25) and Igor Shestyorkin (26) have more. This is Magnus' first KHL shutout of the 2019/2020 campaign.
