Teenage goalkeeper Yaroslav Askarov set a series of SKA records in the KHL:
- At the age of 18 years, three months and one day, he became the youngest SKA goalkeeper in KHL history to gain a shutout. The previous record was held by Igor Shestyorkin when he was 19 years, 11 months and three days of age;
- Yaroslav stopped all 33 shots against Spartak in Moscow, the largest amount of saves a SKA goalkeeper has made when recording his maiden shutout. The previous record was held by Alexander Salak and Igor Shestyorkin with 31 saves;
- He is only the 12th goalkeeper in our history to save a penalty shot during a KHL match, as he shut the door on former SKA forward Sergei Shirokov in the second period. Interestingly, the penalty shot was awarded as a result of Yaroslav being punished for throwing his stick;
- Yaroslav is the first goalkeeper to register his first shutout for SKA in the KHL in only his second game as a starter.
However, if we take into account SKA's entire history, the record for the youngest shutout still belongs to Evgeny Belosheykin who picked up a clean sheet on 22 November 1983 in the USSR championship against Dinamo Riga when he was 17 years, seven months and five days old.
Both defenseman Arseniy Brinkman and forward Vladislav Tsitsyura made their KHL debuts.
Forward Andrei Kuzmenko has registered 125 (57+68) points in 250 KHL matches. 74 (32+42) of his points have been tallied in 127 SKA appearances.
This is the first time in the KHL when Canadian forward Linden Vey has tallied at least one point in six consecutive matches. He has scored one goal and dished out five assists in those particular games.
By scoring six goals and making one assist in the opening six matches of the 2020/2021 KHL campaign, Anton Burdasov set a new personal record with SKA. This was the first game this season in which he didn't get on the scoreboard.
