Sam Lofquist is one of the newcomers to Sibir. He has a playing experience in the KHL. This year he is the only non-Finnish import.

- How did you get to Sibir?

- Sibir said they were interested in me several seasons ago. To be honest, it was always a place I wanted to play in. Sibir was at the top of my list.

- What did you know about the city and the club?

- I heard great things about the city, now I can that it’s a nice place to live. Every import who played in Sibir told great things. I like the organization, I like the playing style.

- Did you know about our fans?

- As a hockey player, there is nothing better playing in front of the fans. I excited to be there. You know, how fans are good there, I don’t need to tell you about it.

- Tell us about your playing style.

- I would agree that I try to play a lot in the offense. I try to use my skating and my shooting ability to help us score goals.

- What can you say about Nikolay Zavarukhin?

- Our head coach seems like somebody who cares about the players and the team. We enjoy coming to the arena, we have fun and we try to play the best. I think we’ll have success this year.
