Steve Moses: "I know that SKA is a great organisation"

- We are all happy to welcome you here. Give us your first reactions on joining SKA.

- Yes, I'm really excited. Having been in this league last year, I know that this is an incredible organisation. It's a great opportunity for me to come here and help the team. The goal is to win, and I think that everyone is on the same page here.

- You have already played a couple of times in the Saint Petersburg Ice Palace. What memories do you have from those games?

- Yes, they are some of the most special games of last season. We played against great players in a great atmosphere. I remember those games last year, and am looking forward to playing here again.

- Would it be right to say that playing for SKA is a new challenge in your career?

- Yes, absolutely. When I signed in the NHL I am little disappointed with how it went, I think that I still have a lot on what I can improve on. I have a long way to go as a player, but this is a new challenge playing for a big club. I have high expectations for myself, and I expect to make a big impact.

- Have you followed the KHL from America?

- I never really let go of the league in my heart, I have been watching all the scores throughout the league. I know that there was a little bit of a downturn at the start of the league, but it seems as though the team has been winning many games now and is moving in the right direction. I think that it is very exciting to come to a team that is expecting to win the league.

- How would you sum up your physical condition?

- It's great. I feel great on the ice, and it's been a couple of days since I have skated. I'm excited to get here and start practicing with the team, and hopefully I will be playing as soon as possible. Like I said, I feel great and am ready to contribute.

- Why is your playing number 12?

- It's the number I have had since I was a little kid, since I was growing up. I was joking that I have always been able to play well when with the number 12, and not so when without it. I'm very excited to wear number twelve here.

- Will you learn Russian?

- I was just talking about it, and how difficult it's going to be. I'll try to pick up some stuff as we go here, but obviously it would be great to learn a language and communicate with all the guys. However, it's going to take some time.
