- On June 10, 2020 here, on the construction site «Arena Omsk», the first test pile was slaughtered. Now we are on the sixth floor. The pace of work is impressive, given the rather heavy winter, when frost reached 30 degrees. Then we did not lose momentum, and we are now in the schedule that allows us to start the KHL championship in Omsk next September.
The Arena is being built for guys like Gleb Trikozov. This is the future of Omsk hockey. He was in the locker room today, and I think he’s already found a place. And if seriously - we count on guys like Gleb, he and other students of our Academy will become the basis of «Avangard». So we invited him to see how the construction was going. Today the wind is strong in Omsk, and the flag was as hard to raise as winning the championship - that to the first team, that to team Gleb - they are also champions of Russia.
Gleb Trikozov, Russian Team Champion (Date of birth 2004):
- I really want to play in front of Omsk fans in the form of a youth team, and certainly in the form of «Avangard» in the CHL championship and the Russian national team at the Youth World Championship. I’ll do my best. The conditions are perfect for us, now the arena will be built - only to go out on ice and win!
