Father: Vladimir Antipin
Brother: Vadim Antipin

Antipin is a great skater who uses an mix of explosiveness and efficient edgework to sneak around and create plays. Has good vision from the point and is also a crafty perimeter player on the power play. Smart and dependable in his own zone too.
(Peter Oundjian, EP 2018)

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.
