Nikita Gusev has now dished out more assists (48) in the KHL Gagarin Cup playoffs than any other SKA player, two more than Vadim Shipachyov (46). Overall, Gusev has made the highest amount of assists for SKA in the KHL regular season (199), playoffs (48) and across all of the league's competitions (247). As a SKA player, the forward has participated in 16 playoff series, only failing to tally a minimum of one assist in one (against CSKA Moscow in 2016). His personal record is eight assists against Metallurg Magnitogorsk in the 2017 Gagarin Cup final.
Gusev is the first player in SKA history to earn a minimum of 50 points in four campaigns across the regular season and the playoffs. Interestingly, since joining SKA, the only season when he failed to reach 50 points was in the 2015/2016 campaign, as he could only register 49. Nevertheless, in all five seasons for SKA so far, he has always earned more points in comparison to the amount of appearances made.
Fellow forward Andrei Kuzmenko has picked up 177 (78+99) points in 250 competitive SKA games. Andrei is the 19th player to play in a minimum of 250 SKA matches, and he's in ninth place of the ranking concerning the amount of points for our club.
Forward Mikhail Vorobyov scored his maiden KHL playoff goal. Furthermore, fellow forward Zakhar Bardakov also tallied his first playoff point..
The first conceded goal marked the 2000th which SKA have let in across 973 KHL games. The only team in the league which is yet to concede 2000 goals having participated in all 14 seasons is indeed CSKA.
Vitaly Abramov is the first player to score goals against SKA for two different teams in the 2021/2022 KHL season. On December 8, the forward had hit the target against SKA for Traktor in Chelyabinsk (1:4).
