2017-08-24 Sabres rookie Victor Antipin excited to showscase skills in NHL BuffaloHockeyBeat.com


PLAYER BIOGRAPHY AND TRIVIA
 
 
 
 
Antipin is already a two-time Gagarin Cup champion with the KHL’s Metallurg Magnitogorsk (2014, 2016) and has represented Russia at the World Championships for the past three seasons; an impressive resume for a defenseman under 25. His 1-year contract with Buffalo marks his first time playing for any organization other than Metallurg, as he was bred in their system from the age of 15.

This season, look for Antipin to translate his explosive, shifty game to NHL ice, while remaining steady in his own zone.
