International Hockey Management is proud to announce the signing of KHL veteran winger, Andrei Stepanov. The Moscow, Russia-born right shot stands 5’10 and weighs 212 pounds. Stepanov was born on April 14, 1986, and and is looking to continue his career in Western Europe. Last season, he played for Dinamo Minsk in the Kontinental Hockey League, and Yunost Minsk of the Belarus Extraleague and Champions Hockey League.

Stepanov is a nine-year veteran of the KHL, playing for Amur Khabarovsk, Sibir Novosibirsk, Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, Lada Togliatti, and Dinamo Minsk. In total, his KHL career numbers are: 415GP-58G-76A-123PTS-195PIM. He is a four-time Belarus Extraleague Champion and five-time Ice Hockey World Championships representative for Belarus. He has also competed for Belarus in two Olympic Games Qualifiers (2012 & 2016). He has donned the Belarus jersey in 106 contests, throughout his career. Stepanov still holds the Belarus Extraleague Single-Season Record for Goals (40) and Points (75), from a stellar 2010-2011 season that included a Continental Cup Championship, and concluded with a Belarus Extraleague Championship. Andrei’s most prolific KHL season, in terms of scoring, was 2016-2017, when he recorded 15 Goals & 14 Assists. That season, Dinamo Minsk featured six players with NHL experience.

International Hockey Management President, Chris White, commented, 

“Andrei is a well-established veteran of both KHL and International play. He is now looking to explore new options in his career, and we are excited to be a part of that process. He is hungry to prove himself in a new league, and a new environment. Andrei has the ability to create some highlight reel quality goals and plays, but more importantly, he has a great work ethic. He has fantastic hands in tight, but he also plays the game like a bulldog. He is a champion and extremely dedicated to his craft. I look forward to working with Andrei on many levels.”
