- Five years is a serious amount of time. When I arrived in Saint Petersburg, I was a very young player, but I have since experienced the best moments of my career. Two KHL Gagarin Cups, one Russian championship, two unbelievable April nights in Kazan and Magnitogorsk, fan meetings at airports, the Nevsky Prospect Parade...this will all remain in my memory. The Olympic victory was also very important. I want to thank the club's management for creating such facilities in Saint Petersburg, the SKA Academy is working excellently with both goalkeepers and skaters. Thank you to all coaches over these past five years and my teammates. Without them, our successes wouldn't have been possible. Thank you to the fans, the atmosphere at the Ice Palace was fantastic for both regular season matches and crucial playoff games. I wish SKA luck for the future and to experience more winning moments!
