I am really happy to be back in Minsk. A lot has changed in the past few months. When I learned I could continue my playing career in HC Dinamo Minsk, I was really happy. I know many guys on the team quite well. Moreover, my return to the Bisons means I am going to continue playing for the Belarusian national team as long as I play hockey. The two previous world championships as part of the Belarusian team was a great experience for me. I hope I will have an opportunity to play for the team at the future international sport forums, said the goalie.
