The first goal, which was scored by forward Anton Burdasov, was SKA's 100th in the 2020/2021 KHL campaign in 34 matches. Interestingly, last year, Anton also tallied our 100th marker of the season on December 17 against HC Severstal Cherepovets.
This is the first time in history when SKA have claimed four consecutive victories against Traktor in Chelyabinsk. The previous record was three successive wins (1955-1958, 2012-2014).
Defenseman Dinar Khafizullin made his 550th appearance in the KHL. 362 of them have been tallied for SKA, the highest total among defensemen of our club.
Fellow defenseman Viktor Antipin competed in the KHL for the 500th time in his career. Thanks to his two assists at the Traktor Ice Arena, the 28-year-old now boasts 194 (71+123) points in the league.
By scoring the first goal in Chelyabinsk, Anton Burdasov registered his 100th point (50+50) in his 208th KHL regular season game for SKA. Furthermore, this was the maiden occasion when the 29-year-old forward managed to score against Traktor, with Anton having started his career with the Ural-based organisation. He is the 28th former Traktor player to score against the Chelyabinsk team as a SKA player.
Forward Vladimir Tkachyov dished out his 50th assist in his 89th SKA match.
Artyom Shvets-Rogovoi scored his first SKA goal. The forward required 44 games to hit the jackpot for the Saint Petersburg club.
This is the first time when defenseman Igor Ozhiganov has registered at least one point for SKA in five KHL matches in a row. During the current point streak, he has scored one goal and made four assists.
In 13 KHL campaigns, there have now been 18 occasions when opposing teams have only scored one goal in both regular-season matches against SKA. Traktor had won the first 2020/2021 meeting between the teams 1:0 in Saint Petersburg with Czech forward Tomas Hyka - who also scored for Traktor on Saturday - tallying the only goal.
