Viktor Tikhonov won’t return to NHL or ask for trade away from SKA
SKA St. Petersburg forward Viktor Tikhonov denied the rumors alleging he is eager to leave the club he recently joined due to not having enough playing time.
«Alexei Kasatonov [SKA general manager – Sports.ru] told me I was allegedly wishing to ask for a trade away from SKA. I was really disappointed and surprised. Nothing like that ever happened to me before. I’m not leaving SKA and I can’t even imagine how they made up this information. It’s unpleasant to be put in such an embarrassing situation in the eyes of my SKA teammates,» Tikhonov said to Sports Daily.
