I have a lot of good memories from my time with Magnitogorsk. For instance, my first career JHL goal in the 2012-13 season in the game against Reaktor Nizhnekamsk or how I was invited to compete for JHL Challenge Cup in Nizhnekamsk as well. Over the years that I spent with the team, I learned how to play like a grown man, be a team player and be the leader. Many Stalnye Lisy alumni become good players in pro leagues. I always noticed their work ethic and how they are goal-driven”.

Dmitry Mikhailov

Position: Right winger
Age: 25

Mikhailov didn’t get to hoist the Kharlamov Cup either as he made his Junior Hockey League debut after Stalnye Lisy’s championship season. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop him from becoming one of the most productive players in franchise history. In 2011 he won a bronze medal at the IIHF U18 World Championship. And in the following season he topped JHL in regular season goals and assists. Mikhailov was also named rookie of the year in the VHL where he continues to play.

Quote

“When Stalnye Lisy won the Kharlamov Cup, I was just making my first steps in the league as I played a handful of games in the regular season,” reminisces Mikhailov. “I didn’t get to play in JHL finals and the following season I went to the U18 IIHF World Championship after the semifinal round. In the first three seasons we won three medals but it wasn’t very emotional for me. The core of the team consisted of 1992 year born guys. Their team had won Russian junior championship titles a few times back in junior hockey school days so it wasn’t our first big win. I was very happy when I was offered to sign a contract with JHL team. We were seen as the leaders. We were to replace the guys who couldn’t play in the league anymore because of the age limit. We were supposed to help our team win and not just be some bystanders. We were able to help our team make Kharlamov Cup Finals for the second consecutive time, which was a success. We’re still in touch with Viktor Antipin. He was always the soul of our team despite being a quiet guy”.

Birthplace: Magnitogorsk, Russia

Current team: Metallurg Magnitogorsk

Achievements

- JHL Challenge Cup participant (2017/2018)

Korobkin is the only player on our list whom we’ll still see in Junior Hockey League as he will only turn 20 in late August. Despite his tender age, Korobkin is a true leader and captain of the team. At the latest JHL Challenge Cup he didn’t get to hoist the trophy but earned an invitation to KHL All-Star Game with his great performance, where he scored a goal.

Quote

“A lot of exciting and notable events have happened in Junior Hockey League, since I came to the league,” says Korobkin. “I remember well my first game for Stalnye Lisy as I scored my first career JHL goal in it. It was pretty funny because the puck was going wide but then it hit defenseman’s skate and ricocheted into the net. There were some sad moments as well. For instance, we lost twice in the opening round to Sibirskie Snaipery and Reaktor Nizhnekamsk. Those losses made me think a lot and hard and motivated me. Unfortunately, I haven’t won a single trophy with Stalnye Lisy yet but I still have one last season ahead of me. In any case, Stalnye Lisy made me the person I am today. When Stalnye Lisy became the first Kharlamov Cup champions I was still very young so I didn’t follow the JHL. Now I know many guys who won that cup. We bump into each other quite often and practice together. Besides, I later watched the 2009 finals and celebration videos as well.”
