SKA's maiden victory against CSKA had been registered on 5 December 1953 (4:3).
Igor Ozhiganov has now tallied 201 (63+138) points in 570 KHL matches. 86 (26+60) of the defenseman's points have been picked up in 179 games for SKA. Furthermore, it's worth pointing out that only 20 defensemen have gained a minimum of 200 points in the KHL.
