Matvei Michkov is facing even more bad news after his coach has proven that he does not trust Michkov enough.

Michkov Scratched Again

SKA St. Petersburg, Matvei Michkov's team, announced their roster for their game against HC Lada today. Michkov was not included in the roster, not even as a 13th forward (which the KHL allows).

Matvei Michkov is not SKA head coach Roman Rotenberg's lineup again today vs. Lada Togliotti. Remains a healthy scratch.

First line: Nikishin, Sergeev - Tolchinsky, Galchenyuk, Khairullin

Second line: Sapego, Kamalov - Leipsic, Glotov, Alistrov

Third line: Pedan, M. Fedotov - I. Fedotov, Vorobyov, I. Demidov

Fourth line: Pashnin - Grebenshchikov, Kadeikin, Dedunov, Zinchenko (13th forward). #hcSKA

Michkov has now been scratched for the 2nd game in a row and SKA is only two games into the season. He has been beaten out by 17-year-old Ivan Demidov who has gotten a promotion from the 13th forward to the third line.

Roman Rotenberg, SKA's coach, made it clear that players who earn their spot in the lineup will get the opportunities and it is clear that Michkov has not done enough to earn a spot in their lineup today.
