Flyers prospect Matvei Michkov loaned to HC Sochi after only skating six minutes in first four games of KHL season
Matvei Michkov has not had the start to his 2023-24 KHL season that he would have wanted. The 18-year-old Philadelphia Flyers prospect was scratched for SKA St. Petersburg’s KHL season opener on September 3 and his fortunes have not really changed since.
Through four games, Michkov played only once. In his only appearance, a game against Torpedo Nizhny Novgorod, Michkov played just over six minutes (6:12). That has led SKA St. Petersburg sending the young forward back on loan to HC Sochi for the rest of the season.
Michkov made the same move last year after playing just three KHL games for SKA St. Petersburg.
