Triple world hockey champion Alexei Tereshchenko told that leaving for the NHL would be the right step in the career of the former Sochi and SKA striker Matveya Michkova .

On Tuesday, SKA announced Michkov’s departure to the NHL, where he will join Philadelphia, which drafted him seventh overall in 2023. The rights to him in the KHL go to the St. Petersburg club.

“I’m happy for Matvey that he’s gone.” I hope everything works out for him there. His decision to go to the NHL must be respected. I think this is the right step for him. Moreover, they were looking forward to it in Philadelphia. He broke the contract with SKA and paid compensation. He has goals, he knows what he wants.

— Will he be able to immediately establish a foothold in Philadelphia?

— It all depends on Matvey himself, on his degree of preparation. Michkov is a guy with a big future, that much is evident from the way he played here. There is no question about his playing qualities, but there are purely human aspects that he needs to improve. I hope that everything will work out for him and we will have another star who will become an NHL star, ”Tereshchenko told .

Last season, Michkov scored 41 (19+22) points in 47 matches for Sochi, where he played on loan. In total, the forward played 91 matches in the KHL for SKA and Sochi, scoring 66 points (30 goals and 36 assists).
