Erik Pettersson enters The Anatoliy Frolov Club by scoring twice in a 5-6 loss against Kazan Dynamo to give him 100 overall goals scored for our hometown team. Membership in the Club is reserved for those bandy players who has sniped one hundred goals for SKA-Neftyanik, firstly accomplished by a legendary forward Anatoliy Frolov in 1968. Erik has become the 24th Member of the A.F.C. By now, Victor Chukhlov is the SKA all time leader in goals, 381. Out of the current runners-up Yuriy Shardakov, 82 goals, and Aleksandr Antipov, 81, who are not that far away from gaining the prestigious A.F.C. membership.
Alan Jusoev has become the only SKA player who has been summoned to the National Team for "the Three Nations" International, which will take place in Finland on January 24 through 26. Maksim Ishkeldin hasn't been called for, due to his request to use the time allocated for the tournament to patch himself up regarding his health issues.
Khabarovsk SKA-Neftyanik and Irkutsk Baikal-Energia met for the fifth time this season yesterday, with our hometown team coming away with a tie, 4-4. SKA accomplished an impressive comeback having scored twice in 81st and 85th minutes to make it even. Another slipshod performance, especially in the D-zone, by the reigning champ indicative of their poor psychological and physical form. Victor Kamenev was strong in the net and deserved acclaim for his multiple saves. Bondarenko (twice), Jusoev and Pettersson scored for the team.
